PIRA Classification: 5G30.20

Description: A copper cone is partially filled with liquid nitrogen and placed over the parallel pole faces of a strong magnet. Liquid oxygen collects at the point of the cone and drips between the pole faces. The liquid is attracted to the closest pole face and eventually bridges the gap between the faces.

Special Instructions: This demo is small, so a camera is used to display the system on the bog screen.

Condition: Good

Setup time: 2 minutes
