I am trying to construct a torsion pendulum/balance for a physics experiment but the research papers are always missing specifics on how the certain connections are made.
I am looking for recommendations on rigid connections for:
- How to attach a glass mirror to tungsten wire.
- How to attach tungsten wire to torsion pendulum/balance beam.
- How to attach PLA to glass.
- How to attach glass to glass (I do not have the capability to melt them).
Here is a link to an example experimental setup. The balance beam I am using is actually quartz glass tube. The wire is tungsten. The plastic components are 3d printed and are PLA. The total weight is about 22lbs suspended from the tungsten wire.
(I posted this in the Physics exchange and they closed it claiming it is an engineering problem)
