TM 605 Coriolis Force Demonstrator Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

The task of this handy benchtop unit is to demonstrate the Coriolis force on bodies in a rotating reference system. A water tank is attached to a rotating boom, this can be placed in motion by a motor. With the aid of a pump, a thin jet of water is generated in the tank, this is sprayed radially from the outside in the direction of the centre of rotation of the rotating boom. Depending on the speed of the setup and the outlet speed of the jet, the jet is deflected by an apparent force, the Coriolis force. The speed of the motor is electronically controlled and displayed digitally. The unit stands on rubber feet and requires, apart for filling with water, only a mains supply.


Learning Objectives / Experiments

- Coriolis force on a water jet in circular motion
  + as a function of the rotational speed
  + as a function of the direction of rotation



* Impressive demonstration of apparent forces in a

  rotating reference system
