De Maagdenburgse bollen
Wat 24 paarden niet vermocht, kon de zachte hand van de diplomaat.

Dit staat voor de justitie paradox: het vacuüm, het gecreëerd gebeuren die ontstaat bij disfuncties bij justitie (zoals voorgesteld op de eerste webpagina) en de zachte hand, wanneer in de stilte en in de schaduw het menselijk falen wordt bijgelegd en er opnieuw harmonie ontstaat.


What 24 horses could not do, the diplomat’s gentle hand could.

This stands for the justice paradox: the vacuum, the created by dysfunctions in the justice system (as presented on the first webpage) and the soft hand, when in the silence and in the shadow, human failures are put right and harmony is restored.


De Maagdenburge bollen

Luchtdicht tegen elkaar sluitende halve bollen, geschikt om het bestaan van luchtdruk aan te tonen.
Dit experiment werd voor het eerst door Otto van →Guericke, burgemeester van Maagdenburg, gedemonstreerd.

De halve bollen worden tegen elkaar geplaatst en de ruimte er binnen luchtledig gemaakt met een luchtpomp; er blijkt een zeer grote kracht nodig te zijn om ze van elkaar te trekken.

Otto von Guericke, burgemeester van Maagdenburg, toonde op de Rijksdag te Regensburg (1654) het effect van de luchtdruk: 16 paarden waren niet in staat twee luchtledig gepompte halve bollen van 55 cm middellijn van elkaar te trekken.

Airtight half spheres closed against each other, suitable to prove the existence of air pressure.
This experiment was first demonstrated by Otto van →Guericke, mayor of Magdeburg.

The hemispheres were placed against each other and the space within them was made airless with an air pump; it turned out that a very great force was needed to pull them apart.

Otto von Guericke, mayor of Magdeburg, demonstrated the effect of air pressure at the Regensburg Imperial Diet (1654): 16 horses were unable to pull apart two airless pumped hemispheres of 55 cm diameter.

Put hemispheres precisely together so that all edges match. Pump air out of the space between hemispheres. The inner pressure highly decreases. Because of the difference in pressure the outer air pressure highly presses hemispheres together. When the air leaks again between hemispheres, hemispheres get apart again. Otto von Guericke was the first who exposed this experiment for the emperor in Magdeburg in the year 1654. Two horse teams weren’t strong enough to separate the hemispheres. This is physics experiment for science project.
