Photo Hunt - Metal

PhotoHunt


*click photos to enlarge*
This week's photohunt got me stumbled for a while.
I was lucky to be at The Science Centre, Singapore.
Where I came across this weight experiment which consist
of a metal block weighing 200kg!!!!!
Lift the Metal Block using a horizontal bar with ropes on different lever lengths to learn the greater the distance applied from the fulcrum, the easier it is to lift the weight.Visit my other PhotoHunt

Excellent educational idea, and it makes for a great post. Well done.

eastcoastlife said...

Night at the museum! 24hrs@ACM Empress Place, from 7pm tonight to 7pm tomorrow night. Last chance to go on the Nalanda trail. There are activities for the kids. Good excuse for them to stay up late!! Free entrance! See you there.

mrsnesbitt said...

We have a science museum in London here in UK. It is one of my husband's favourite places to visit. He can spend the whole day there. I am quite interested, but he explains stuff to me, and that's when I start to lose the plot! Dumb blonde! LOL!

Napaboaniya said...

@eastcoastlife,
Raining heavily again Zzzz.. I'll bring my kids there tonight!! Hope to you see there :) Thanks for informing me wor

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Very cool! What a great way to teach people about some basic mechanical principles! :)

eastcoastlife said...

Alamak! Give the kids a break lah! Tomorrow's Sunday leh. Once in a while, break the monotony of their schedule. Come on!

Napaboaniya said...

@Eastcoastlife,
He just TOLD or THREATEN me 1 second ago, "you want take taxi?" (*^&*%&*%&$%

eastcoastlife said...

kakaka.... I bet I kena placed on his black-list now. I can fetch you all leh!

I'm not promoting Buddhism. I'm a Christian. But it is good to know another's religion and the kids will study this in their History lessons when they are in secondary schools. This is a good start with exhibits to see and the events that are being planned. Go with an Open Mind.

Don't quarrel over such small matter lah. I thought (in my kindest of heart... blek....) I was sharing some interesting events with you. Still will do it but your choice to attend, of course.

Happy weekend!

Napaboaniya said...

@eastcoastlife,
We didn't quarrel over it lar :P
We're be there for the 9pm guided tour :) You're a doll in informing me! Happy Easter to you.

I think it was the ancient experimenter Archimedes who said (or inspired) the quote: "Give me a fulcrum and a place to stand and I will move the Earth." A single man or woman seems puny in the grand scale of things, but given the right advantage of leverage, the right forum, perhaps, he or she can be heard around the world!

Pretty Life Online said...

Nice catch for the photohunt theme... Hope you'll visit mine too..

starnitesky said...
