Foucault Pendulum

This exhibit is currently under maintenance and is therefore not available at this time.



  • Sorry to say, but the pendulum was removed from Sterling Hall after physics movie into Chamberlin Hall. Plans are to have the pendulum rehung within the light-well off the main lobby area in Chamberlin Hall, between the Physics Museum (room 2230) and Lecture Hall (room 2241), opposite the main stairwell. These plans are now on hold, due to funding and design issuse.
