The sensor configuration of the Centripetal Force Apparatus ensures reliable data.
- User Manual Included
- Two Support Legs Included
- Encoder Wheel Included
- Rotating Assembly Included
- Platform Can Also Investigate Angular Momentum
This convenient apparatus can be configured to accommodate a force sensor and photogate for the best set of data. Measure angular speed and centripetal force using any photogate and force sensor.
When driven by a falling mass, the platform can also be used to investigate angular momentum. Masses can be added or removed and positioned at variable radii for a variety of outcomes. The apparatus is for educational use only.
Ordering information: This apparatus includes a rectangular frame; two support legs; a rotating assembly consisting of a rotational shaft, encoder wheel, 3-step pulley, rotating beam, and bearing housing; a sliding carriage to hold the test masses; and counterbalance carriage to balance the rotating beam. Sensors are available separately.
