Capillary action is the result of adhesion and surface tension. Find out all about it on this excellent site.
A page explaining how capillary action works and how it helps you to mop up a spill a paper towel.
Witness capillary action yourself with this experiment you can try at home.
A diagram showing a dc generator working, on which the frequency of ration is adjustable. The results are seen on an analogue meter, and an oscilloscope screen. Useful description of the commutator.
Interactively explore the timeline of the universe.
Various applets allowing results to be taken for demonstration purposes.
How do plants transport water? An experiment using celery and paper towels to demonstrate capillary action.
A fun toy that lets you build a sledge run and then test it out. You'll need a good feel for the laws of motion to get results!
Properties of water including state changes, adhesion and cohesion, capillary action and surface tension.
Kaufmann's experimental results on deflection of electrons in an electromagnetic field favoured Abraham's theory, not Einstein and Lorentz, but were eventually proved wrong.
