Subject: Inertia Ball


I will be doing a demonstration for alumnae soon.
I plan to do an inertia ball demonstration. i.e. I plan to tie
two strings to a weight and hang the weight by one of them.
If I pull slowly on the bottom one, the upper one
breaks. If I pull quickly, the lower one breaks.
Do any of you know of any videos (especially high speed videos) of this?
Also, can you suggest any related demos?
