Description: A double cone is placed at the bottom of an 'incline'. When released, the cone appears to travel up the incline. In reality, the incline is in the shape of a 'V'; that is, it widens at the top of the incline. As the cone travels up the incline, it also appears to sink. However, the center of mass of the cone remains on a path parallel to the ground.
