        Center of Gravity: Pencil Balance

        The ease with which an object can be balanced depends greatly on the location of its center of gravity. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, two cast members experiment with various designs in an effort to balance a pencil on its tip. Their solution lowers the pencil's center of gravity, making this seemingly difficult balancing feat all but effortless.
