Minnix, Richard B.; Carpenter, D. Rae, Jr.
Physics Teacher, v23 n2 p113-16 Feb 1985
Describes a new method and apparatus (consisting of a steel sheet, electromagnet, base, balls, and carbon paper) used to perform mechanics experiments which, until now, required use of an air table. Also compares the apparatus to an air table, explores its range of uses, and examines rotational dynamics. (DH)
