Physics - stage trick
posted by Shaila on .
A stage trick involves covering a table with a smooth cloth. When the cloth is suddenyl pulled horizontally, the dishes "magically" stay in position and drop on to the table.
a)identify all the forces acting on the dishes during the trick
b)explain ho inertia and frictional forces are involved in the trick
The trick part is to use a think, slick cloth, with little friction(satin, silk).
