Climbing Cone


This exhibit is designed to demonstrate the motion of the center of mass. The natural movements of objects are determined by their center of mass. According to the laws of physics, the center of mass falls down. But, because of the way this exhibit has been constructed, although the center of mass is going down, it seems as if the object is climbing. This principle is also demonstrated by the ballerinas that appear to stay up in the air for long durations.
