FIG. 1.

Geometrical parameters useful to calculate the equilibrium condition. Only when , at each small oscillation around the (horizontal) equilibrium position corresponds an increase in the vertical coordinate of the c.m.

Scheme of the half sphere clamp. The collar (a) is tightened with three screws onto the base (b). The hole in the collar is conical and it is sufficiently wide to let the tip of the half sphere to come out about 1 mm. The base (b) is clamped on a rigid plate inside the vacuum tank. (c) is a zoomed view of the clamped half sphere.

Microscope image of the surface of the steel sphere after some suspensions. It is possible to see that the sphere has been damaged by the disk and by the clamp.
