thanx for your reply,

I have looked at your exploratorium web site again and I have been unable to
locate an individual snack on that subject. I was using Apple's Sherlock
program to search the internet and the exploratorium site came up as a match
for Cardan's Suspension. I think the search I conducted was not specific
enough and referred me to your site as I typed 'Cardan's Suspension'.
Sherlock gave me hits directed to your site based upon the word 'Suspension'
(I think)...

Thanks for your time anyway,

I will continue to look elseware fore the information I require.

ps - Great site by the way - good to see that you can show young people how
to do the science - not just the theory behind it!!
