history of spinning tops

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Some tops have faceted bodies with symbols or inscriptions, and are used like dice to inject randomness into games , or for divination and ritual purposes. Hidden categories: Wikipedia articles needing page number citations from May All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Articles with unsourced statements from March Wikipedia articles incorporating citation to the NSRW Wikipedia articles incorporating citation to the NSRW with an wstitle parameter Wikipedia articles with GND identifiers Wikipedia articles with NDL identifiers. Namespaces Article Talk. Crabtree London: Longman, Green and C. In some throwing styles, the top is thrown upside-down, but the first loop of the rope is wound around a stubby "head". These variables however are constrained by the need to prevent the body from touching the ground. The top is a focal element and metaphysical symbol in the movie Inception , directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Categories : Traditional toys Wooden toys Tops Game equipment. In the final shot, the camera moves over the spinning top just before it appears to be wobbling.

A spinning topor simply a topis a toy with a squat body and a history of spinning tops point at the bottom, designed to be spun on its vertical axisbalancing on the tip due to the gyroscopic effect. They may be set in motion by twirling a handle with the fingers, by pulling read article rope coiled around the body, or by means of a built-in auger spiral plunger.

Download as PDF Printable version. Once set in motion, a top will usually wobble for a few seconds, spin upright for a while, then start to wobble again with increasing amplitude as it loses energy angular momentumand finally tip over and roll on its side.

In addition, plastic and metal have largely supplanted the use of wood in tops. Some modern tops are history of spinning tops perpetually in motion by spinning magnetic fields from a special ground plate. Some role-playing games use tops to augment dice in generating randomized results; it is in this case referred to as a spinner.

In the "sleep" period, and only in it, provided it is ever reached, less friction means longer "sleep" time whence the common error that less friction implies longer global history of spinning tops time.

NY: Clarkson Potter. Wikimedia Commons. Then, the sudden yank on the history of spinning tops as the string finishes unwinding causes the spinning top to flip over and land on its tip. Typically the top will at first wobble until friction and torque between the tip and the underlying surface force it to spin with the axis steady and upright.

Besides toys, tops have also historically been used for gambling and prophecy. Some larger models are set in motion by means of a built-in metal auger.

Spinning tops originated independently in cultures all over the world. Tops exist in many variations and materials, chiefly woodmetaland plasticoften with a metal tip.

Because of the small contact area between the tip and the underlying surface, and history of spinning tops large rotational inertia of its body, a top that is started on a hard surface will usually keep spinning for tens of seconds or more, even without additional energy input.

A thumbtack may also be made to spin on its tip in the same way. The rope is best wound starting near the tip and progressing up along the widening body, so that the tension of the string will remain roughly constant while the top's angular speed increases. Maxwell's color top and one from Popular Science Monthly History of spinning tops wooden rattleback.

Help Community portal Recent changes Upload file. The forward momentum of the top contributes to the string's tension and thus to the final spin rate. Modern tops may have several sophisticated improvements, such as a relatively sharp tip made of ruby or a hard ceramic like tungsten carbidethat reduces the friction with the ground surface.

Forbes, which I witnessed in … [established] that blue and yellow do not make green, but a pinkish tint, when neither prevails in the combination…[and the] result of mixing yellow and blue was, I believe, not previously known.

Smaller tops have a short stem, article source are set in motion by twirling it using the fingers.

A top may also be used to demonstrate visual properties, such as by James David Forbes and James Clerk Maxwell in Maxwell's disc see color triangle. The Top is a short story by bohemian writer Franz Kafka. Views Read Edit View history. Archived from the original PDF on 10 August Retrieved 15 August Juggling and object manipulation.

Contrary to what is sometimes assumed, longstanding scientific studies and easy experimentations reproducible by anyone show that reducing the friction increases the time needed to reach this stable state unless the top is so unbalanced that it falls over before reaching it.

Archived from the original on Dover Publications. The motion of a top is described by equations of rigid body dynamics , specifically the theory of rotating rigid bodies. The top is one of the oldest recognizable toys found on archaeological sites. These tops may be thrown forward while firmly grasping the end of the string and pulling it back. There are many official competitions of top spinning, such as the U. Alternatively, tops of this class may be started by hand but then accelerated and kept in motion by striking them repeatedly with a small whip. Maxwell took this a step further by using a circular scale around the rim with which to measure the ratios of the primaries, choosing vermilion , emerald , and ultramarine. A typical fist-sized model, traditionally made of wood with a blunt iron tip, is meant to be set in motion by briskly pulling a string or rope tightly coiled around the body. Such toys have been used since antiquity in solitary or competitive children games, where each player tries to keep one's top spinning for as long as possible, or achieve some other goal. Cambridge University Press. By rapidly spinning the top, Forbes created the illusion of a single color that was a mixture of the primaries: [3]. In these models, the actual top may be enclosed in a hollow metal shell, with the same axis but decoupled from it; so that the toy may appear to be stationary but "magically" balanced on its tip. The bully and the named top in the title are challenged by Shepherd's ongoing protagonist Ralph and a so-called "gypsy top" of similar design to Mariah named Wolf. Gould mentions maple seeds , celts leading to rattlebacks , the fire-drill , the spindle whorl , and the potter's wheel as possible predecessors to the top, which he assumes was invented or discovered multiple times in multiple places. The total spinning time of a top is generally increased by increasing its moment of inertia and lowering its center of gravity. Asymmetric tops of virtually any shape can also be created and designed to balance. Gould The Top.
