Ivanov, Dragia; Nikolov, Stefan – Physics Education, 2019
In this article we consider the well-known demonstration of friction by two interleaved books. We consider a factor that has not been part of the popular explanation--atmospheric pressure. We provide three control experiments to demonstrate the role of atmospheric pressure in the two-book experiment and an additional simple demonstration of the…

Ladino Gaspar, Luis Alejandro; Rondón Troncoso, Hermilda Susana – Physics Education, 2019
In this paper we present a method to construct a simple, sturdy and inexpensive photogate to be used in elementary physics laboratories. The great advantage of the proposed design is that it has no transmitter-receiver alignment related problem at all and the receiver is nicely encapsulated which prevents any spurious light triggering the…
