Induction
Motor

Eddy currents set up in a floating metal ball repel
the magnetic field from the apparatus and make the ball spin.

Inelastic
Collisions, equal mass

In all cases, the two carts stuck together after the
collision will have a momentum that is equal to the combined momentum
of the two carts before the collision.

Inertia
Rods

These rods weigh the same, but due to the distribution
of the mass, one is harder to rotate than the other.

Inverted
Liquid

An index card is placed on top cylinder full of water.
The cylinder is then inverted. A slight vacuum is created, keeping
the index card sealed to the cylinder, thus keeping the water from
pouring out.

Jumping
Ring; cold ring, regular core

The magnetic field induced in the ring opposes the magnetic
field of the core, making it jump off the apparatus. Cooling the ring
before hand in LN2 lowers its resistance and allows it to jump higher.

Jumping
Ring; cold ring, long core

The magnetic field induced in the ring opposes the magnetic
field of the core, making it hover above the apparatus. Cooling the
ring before hand in LN2 lowers its resistance and allows it to hover
higher.

Jumping
Ring; split ring, regular core

A magnetic field cannot be induced in the ring when
the ring is split, such as seen here using an aluminum Pepsi can.
