Stabilizing Apparatus for the Cardboard Tube Demo

Schematic drawing of stabilization tool

This apparatus can be constructed from wood or sturdy cardboard. The important concept is to have a channel that will support the weight of the tube and the pressure from a student's grip while the student strikes the end of the tube.

EXPECTED RESULT: A bulge will appear in the balloon membrane at the other end of the tube.
