What is a Gravity Well? How can you demonstrate the pull of gravity that a large body exerts in space? Using this exciting apparatus known as a Gravity Well or Gravitational Well allows students to visualize the attraction of massive objects due to gravity. The more massive the body, the deeper and more extensive the gravity well. Our sun exerts a deep and vast gravity well relative to other bodies in our solar system which keeps the planets rotating around it.
Consisting of a flexible sheet and collapsible frame, the Gravity Well is supplied with all you need to bring the study of gravity to life.
- Coalescence of stars
- Variation of the orbital period with distance from a star
- Formation of orbital systems
The unit gives an impressive demonstration and packs away for easy storage. Supplied with full instructions and suggested experiments. Assembled: 180cm diameter, 80 cm height.
