An Innovative Method to Study Stokes' Law in the Laboratory
Wadhwa, Ajay
Physics Education, v43 n3 p301-304 May 2008
A new method is introduced to study the behaviour of the falling spherical ball in a viscous liquid using the well known Stokes' law. Experimental results are compared with those obtained by numerical calculations. Upper limits on the size and mass of the spherical balls of different materials used in the experiment are presented. (Contains 5 tables and 5 figures.)
