Physics Corner

A Physics Corner was held at the volleyball court during lunch time on 12thMarch. Two activities were prepared for students:

  • Rope-walker challenge: Students needed to use their own way to make the rope-walker model roll from one end of string to the other end without falling.
  • Forks-balancing challenge: Students needed to balance a pair of forks with a piece of a toothpick along  the side of a beaker.

The trick for both challenges was to lower the center of gravity of the objects so that restoring moments are generated to stabilize the objects.A lot of students participated in the activities and fully indulged in the challenges. The event helped to raise students’ interest in learning physics.
