Description

For the dramatic and puzzling visualisation of the effect of change of centre of gravity of an object. Consists of a pair of wooden double ended cones, a wooden diverging bar 0 to 10cm wide, serving as an inclined plane.

When the double cone is set on the bars of the inclined plane the cone appears to roll up the plane violating the law of gravity. This is possible because the axis of the cone is actually moving downward due to a widening of the track.
