With the Force Mechanism Trough, students can research acceleration and the effect of gravity on a moving body by propelling steel balls or a wood block down an aluminum trough track.
- Low-Cost Apparatus for Studying Acceleration and Gravity
- Instructions Included
- Molded Plastic Supports Included
- Trigger Mechanism Included
- Five Steel Balls Included
One experiment demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy in collisions.
The other shows the difference between sliding and rolling friction.
Ordering information: This kit includes a 43" long, all-aluminum, v-shaped track; injection molded plastic supports; trigger mechanism with four settings; five 3/4" dia. steel balls; irregular shaped wood block; and instructions.
