Maxwell Disc

SKU Code: REMZ45B

This exhibit is designed to demonstrate the conversion of energy. It consists of a disc attached to two strings. The disc can be wound using the handles on either end. When the disc is released, the potential energy present in a high position is converted into rotational energy as it travels downwards. The rotational movement repeats, as the disc moves upwards again, to be converted back into potential energy.
