        Defy Gravity! Centripetal Force

        In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members use centripetal force to demonstrate that a ball set in motion can remain inside an open container even when the container is held upside down. They succeed in generating centripetal force, but they also reveal that this force alone is not enough to completely offset the force of gravity.
