Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad description The description says "solid rubber wheel" This is not true. The wheel I just received is a regular, lightweight (i.e. small moment of inertia) inflatable bicycle wheel. These don't work as well as the solid wheels for angular momentum demos, since they are full of air, not heavy rubber. Low quality product that doesn't match description, in short

Rated 4 out of 5 by from extremely effective product, extremely expensive product This is an excellent piece of equipment to teach students about angular momentum (I used it to teach 6th graders). However, it's just a bicycle wheel with a small attachment. This can be easily made at home if you have an extra bicycle wheel. I would suggest doing that, if you're able. Otherwise, if you don't have the materials at home, or are not handy, or just don't have the time, then I recommend this product.
