Designing a Mercury Tumbling Machine
To create a machine to tumble liquid mercury for a display required modification of the physical parameters for visual and functional purposes. This Demonstration allows you to change the shape of the various components used to form the mechanical base of the tumbler. The results from these parameter adjustments can be seen on Theodore Gray's Periodic Table website. The base is cast of 99.99% pure zinc.
