An Unusual Rolling-Sphere Phenomenon.
Cromer, Alan
Physics Teacher, v34 n1 p48-50 Jan 1996
Discusses the theory behind a study of motion where a hollow plastic sphere racing against a steel sphere in two parallel sections of inclined channeling always reaches the bottom first; once on the floor, however, the steel sphere travels faster, speeding past the plastic sphere when both are about one meter from the base of the track.
