Do you need some physics to go with your beads? Well, here it is. Actually, I will let you do the physics (for now – meaning if you don’t analyze these, I will).
Here are some pictures of a broken strand of beads. I hung them on my fence – you know, for display. Click the image to get a larger analyzable version. Oh – I just happened to include a meter stick in the image. Also, just for show I included a level (that is level).
Now, I have two videos. In both of these videos, I again included a meter stick. You know…because I like meter sticks. Also, I am posting these videos on vimeo primarily because you can download by default from vimeo without any tricks.
PS: Don’t forget about Tracker Video. If you analyze any of this stuff, I would love to hear what you find.
