Pulp Friction Experiment
The Pulp Friction Experiment, from Planet Science, is available in English, French, German and Spanish, and is used as a demonstration of friction. Students simply require two books with the pages interlocked to try this quick experiment. Students discover that paper is not as smooth as it seems and that there is friction between pages when they are pulled apart. This resource is aimed at Key Stage Three students.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
