Physics demonstrations: a sourcebook for teachers of physics

These demonstrations will fascinate, amaze, and teach students the wonders and practical science of physics. ""Physics Demonstrations"" illustrates properties of motion, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, and light.

All demonstrations include a brief description, a materials list, preparation procedures, a provocative discussion of the phenomena displayed and the principles illustrated, important information about potential hazards, and references.

Suitable for performance outside the laboratory, Sprott's demonstrations are an indispensable teaching tool. This book includes a DVD of the author performing all 85 demonstrations.
