The Go Direct Centripetal force apparatus and Go Direct force and acceleration sensor make an ideal combination to explore rotational dynamics.

  • Investigate circular motion by measuring centripetal acceleration in relation to the radius of rotation and angular velocity
  • Explore rotational dynamics through an investigation of the force required to keep a mass in circular motion
  • Explore Newton's second law, angular acceleration, and the moment of inertia as they relate to circular motion
When students use this apparatus with a Go Direct force and acceleration sensor, they can conduct a variety of rotational dynamics investigations with a single experiment setup. This combination easily measures angular velocity and centripetal force and acceleration without the hassle of wires. Go Direct sensors connect directly to mobile device, Chromebook™, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis™ 4 app - no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary.

Ordering information: Go Direct force and acceleration sensor not included. It includes base with adjustable feet, bearing and spindle, rotating beam, sensor bracket, mass carriage with thumb screws, mass carriage with bearings, 50 g masses (2), 100 g masses (4).
