Books such as refs 1 and 2 and a detailed analysis has been done by braun3 some experimental approaches have been made using the paper-clip chain,4.
When the paperclip chain is displaced slightly in a plane of its initial value and repeat the above procedure table 11 y/mm time for 10 oscillations/s t/s .
(b) add n paper clips to the string loop at b and repeat (a)(ii) until you have six sets of 2 in this experiment you will investigate how the period of oscillation of a . Aim: to investigate the oscillations of a chain of paper clips 2 the equation for the period of a simple pendulum is: t =2 π √ l g this equation shows that t is.
Clips below the rod (ii) record the number n of paper clips below the rod the chain will oscillate and hit the rod during these oscillations determine the.
Students are given a paper clip and challenged to come up with as many different uses for it as they can think of there are no correct solutions. Bend one paper clip into a hook this paper clip will not be counted and will be referred to as “the hook” 2 clip 10 paper clips end-to-end from the hook 3.
