I would imagine very thin rings would yield undesirable results. We have printed ours on standard paper and then laminated them. Printing and gluing to poster board, or printing on card stock, would probably also work. 2. The funnels we use are large, plastic, automobile-motor-oil-type funnels, not lab funnels.

You can run the activity at a low height and analyze, then run again at a higher height and discuss higher energy electrons and all that good stuff.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
