Dekstop Toy with Wooden Base
from Art In Motion
 
A physics demonstration classic. Named after Sir Isaac Newton, this device demonstrates the principles of conservation of momentum and energy. The principle demonstrated by the device, the law of impacts between bodies, was first demonstrated by the French physicist, Abbé Mariotte in the 17th century. Sir Isaac Newton acknowledged Mariotte's work, among that of others, in his Principia. It is constructed from a series of five pendulums abutting one another. Each pendulum is attached to a frame by two strings of equal length angled away from each other.
