CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THE CONCEPT OF TOPPLING USING PROBLEMS ON IT?
Demonstrations of the effect
The classic demonstration involves setting up a chain of dominoes stood on end, and toppling the first domino. That domino topples the one next to it, and so on. In theory, however long the chain the dominoes will still fall. This is because the energy required to topple each domino is less than the energy transferred by each impact, so the chain is self-sustaining. Energy is stored by setting each domino in the metastable upright position, and that energy is what keeps the chain toppling. The mechanics of domino toppling is described by W. J. Stronge as a system with two attractors. Two theories are described: independent action and successive destabilization by cooperative neighbors.
Often Rube Golberg machines will involve a complicated chain of reactions succeeding each other in a domino fashion.
