Magic Napkin Force And Motion Science Experiment
In this fun and easy force and motion science experiment for kids, we’re going to explore inertia by creating a magic napkin.
- Plastic cup full of water
- Drape the napkin over the edge of a table.
- Place the plastic cup of water on the napkin and about one inch from the edge of the table.
- Quickly jerk the napkin out from under the plastic cup of water.
How it Works:
Inertia explains that an object at rest will tend to stay at rest. Although we yanked the napkin out from under the cup of water, the cup wanted to stay at rest and did not move.
