The multi-purpose Inclined Plane simplifies experiments involving motion and friction.
- Experiment Topics Include Acceleration, Newton's Laws, and Friction
- Provided Cart Won't Fall off Track
- Numbered Increments on the Plane's Side for Measurements
- Pre-Mounted Pulley
- Instructions and Activities Included
Students can perform accurate experiments on acceleration, Newton’s laws, and friction. The cart included with this inclined plane rides on bearing wheels down a groove in the track, so it will never fall off the track. Numbered increments along the side allow students to take measurements during experiments or with the photogate system, which clamps easily to the side for greater accuracy.
Using the pre-mounted pulley on the plane’s end with a mass and string, students can create a modified Atwood machine. The attached protractor also allows for easy angle measurements.
Ordering information: This kit includes an inclined plane, mounting screw, instructions, and activity guide. The Fun Stand and Photogate System are required but not included.
