Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Attach the String

Take the protractor and the 16 inch of string. Put the string through the hole at the bottom, attach it using tape.

Step 2: Attach Weight

After you attach the string to the protractor, you tie a weight to the end of the string. Double tying it will keep it from coming loose.

Step 3: Attach Straw

Last but not least, you take the straw and tape it to the bottom. Remember to subtract the number you get by 90.

    Looks like someone's cloned this exactly at https://www.instructables.com/id/Clinometer-1/ Did you somehow create two copies under different usernames?
