Cool Physics demos site

Posted on March 02, 2011 by Juan

I am always on the look out for inspiration for physics demos for my classes.

One my my students, Ben, just walked into my office to tell me to check out Fizik.si.  This is the English version of a Slovakian website which has a bunch of information on Physics demos.  The cool part is the science videos page which presents a few videos of physics demos (no audio in the videos).  Don’t forget to check out the links on the right hand side of the page for demos in other areas.

Ben specifically pointed me to this video:

This video demonstrates total internal reflection of a laser beam being bent by a column of water leaking out of a pop bottle, just like a fiber optic cable.  Cool ideas abound on this website.
