  1. Good experiment. I would be interested in seeing what happens with different weight distributions.

  2. Great lab notebook. Very interesting project. I liked the method you used to spin your top using a drill motor. I thought if you were to add more weight to the top that it would spin longer. Your results were very interesting. Good project. Keep up the good work!
