Website Detail Page

written by John Walker
This web page outlines an experiment to measure the effects of gravity for objects on the scale of kilograms. It begins by introducing the principles of gravity and comparing it against other forces. After demonstrating the weakness of the effects of gravity, the author performs an experiment to demonstrate that the effects of gravity are still detectable. The detailed specifications of the experimental setup are given, along with an explanation of the role of each part, so that it can be reproduced anywhere else. The web site provides two video clips that show the execution of the experiment and a conclusion on the observed phenomenon.
