The Kinetic Art Galaxy is powered by physics and inspired by art. This stunning desktop piece can be powered by physics alone, but also enhanced with batteries. The outer rings swing back and forth, propelling the inner ring to swing and circle.
- Ages 14+
- 9V battery (not included)
Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, observable as the movement of an object, particle, or set of particles. Any object in motion is using kinetic energy: a person walking, a thrown baseball, a crumb falling from a table, and a charged particle in an electric field are all examples of kinetic energy at work.
Objects that are not in motion possess potential energy (the other main type of energy), which is converted to kinetic energy when some force, such as gravity, acts upon the object to set it in motion.
