PHYSICS TRICKS - Physics is Phun !

The purpose of this site is to pool together physics demonstrations that "trick" the audience, in order to create a "teaching moment".

Feel free to click "Edit This Page" at the top of any page to add your demonstrations.

You can also add variations on an existing trick, list pointers and potential pitfalls, and explain the physics behind the trick.
You can add links to other websites that illustrate your trick, and you can even add pictures and video!
Contributors may also leave their name.
