The Perfect Blend of Science and Art
Newton's Cradle - Isaac Newton declared that ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’ - this toy offers the perfect demonstration of this fundamental law in an eye-catching and mesmerising display. This mini Newton’s Cradle is an exact replica of the original design and is much more than a distracting desk toy; it’s science in motion!
But how does it work..? Simply pull back and release one ball and only one ball on the other side will react, pull back and release two balls and two balls will react, three balls and three balls will take it in turns to swing from side to side! The energy is transmitted through the static balls in the centre to the equivalent balls on the other side which react accordingly and swing out to mirror the movement.
Durable 7" x 5" chrome frame with 5 stainless steel spheres.
