Building Frames for Newton's CradlesThis past Wednesday, the AP Physics 1 classes built frames for Newton’s Cradles.  Newton’s Cradles are well-known, but are not fully understood within the physics community, so by designing and building our own cradles, we should be able to conduct experiments that will push forward the understanding of how they work.  In addition, students learned valuable practical skills, including that drills have two directions – In and Out – and if you try to drill into a piece of wood on the Out setting, you’ll overheat and bend the drill bit!
