Standing pendulums and cables upside down: the ‘Indian Rope Trick’ in the laboratory

It has been known for around a century that vibrating the pivot point of a pendulum can cause it to stand upside down. The effect is often referred to as the ‘Kapitza pendulum’. Here we will broaden the idea and apply the concepts to inverting sets of pendulums and flexible cables. The talk will include vivid live demonstrations of the effects.
