A rolling ball magic trick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper describes a simple and effective trick with a ball on a flat surface. The trick does not require any skills, is surprising and can provide an attention-grabbing, fun introduction for high school students into the topic of pure rolling motion versus rolling with slipping.
