Demos: 1Q-02 Spinning Bicycle Chain

A bicycle chain tightly fits around a wood disc. The disc is mounted on an electric powered drill. Pull the trigger of the drill so the disc/chain begins to spin. Once sufficient angular speed has been achieved, gently nudge the chain off of the disc. It will roll and maintain its circular shape due to centrifugal effects.
