Fotografía Serie Autorretratos En el péndulo de Foucault. Photo series selfportrait in -foucault pendulum-


Un péndulo de Foucault es un péndulo esférico que puede oscilar libremente en cualquier plano vertical y capaz de oscilar durante mucho tiempo (horas). Se utiliza para demostrar la rotación de la Tierra. Se llama así en honor de su inventor, Léon Foucault.

The first public exhibition of a Foucault pendulum took place in February 1851 in the Meridian of the Paris Observatory. A few weeks later Foucault made his most famous pendulum when he suspended a 28 kg brass-coated lead bob with a 67 meter long wire from the dome of the Panthéon, Paris. The plane of the pendulum's swing rotated clockwise 11° per hour, making a full circle in 32.7 hours. The original bob used in 1851 at the Panthéon was moved in 1855 to the Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers in Paris. A second temporary installation was made for the 50th anniversary in 1902.
