Two Forks in Ballance

Group 6 - Silvia C, Denise D, Patricia N, Carmen P - Colegiul Naţional "Mihai Eminescu" Satu Mare, România

This is an old trick to balance two forks supported by a thin tooth pick. This one is quite spectacular when you actually see the pivot point resting on the rim of a glass.
This demonstration shows not only the concept of center of gravity but also stability.
Material list:
  • One cork such as wine bottle cork;
  • Two metal dinner forks, preferably identical;
  • Toothpick;
  • One glass;
  • Matches
