The short amount of time required to perform each workout is also PERFECT for busy mums. HIIT is often described as a workout that is made up of intense bursts of effort (60 seconds) and short periods of recovery or reduced activity (30 – 60 seconds).

ACTIVITY OF THE DAY

How a pendulum works

80 calories choc mint cookies recipe and HIIT workout that will help you burn 676 calories!

A pendulum operates by converting energy back and forth due to the force of gravity. You can see the forces of motion and gravity in motion by making this pendulum experiment with your kids.

You can use either sand or paint – we suggest sand, as paint may get messy! And you can do this experiment in your backyard or on a balcony.

All you need is a cup with a hole in the bottom, to stings attached to either side of the cup, a chair with arm rests to tie the cup to or hold next to in the same position and a piece of black paper underneath.

Steps

  1. Set up the chair with the black paper underneath it.
  2. Put sand in the cup but make sure you put your finger over the hole so it doesn’t spill out.
  3. Tie the cup to the chair or hold it in the same place against the armrest
  4. Let go of the cup and let gravity take its course

What you will see is that the pendulum with swing side to side and the sand will drain out but it will make a pattern on the black sheet of paper. The important thing is to not touch your pendulum!

The sand cup will swing to make a circle shape and if you wait long enough the circle will become smaller and smaller as the pendulum slows down and eventually fills in the circle.

And there you have it, a lesson in how gravity and pendulums work!
