Demonstration: three methods of visualising elliptical orbits.
Demonstration: demonstrating the law using air or carbon dioxide pucks – or an ice rink.
Class practical: the simple kit demonstrates the increase in speed with a diminishing radius of orbit.
Demonstration: the speed of the puck increases as the radius of orbit of the puck decreases.
This simple class activity demonstrates the increase in speed with a diminishing radius of orbit.
