Active involvement turns into fun #physics! When a student or teacher sits on the Dynamics Cart, they become part of the experiment, creating a real-world experience that teaches concepts like Newton's Third Law. Check out our #lessonidea teachers can perform in their classroom. #newtonslaw #newtonsthirdlaw
How does the normal force change with angle on an inclined plane? This engaging piece of lab equipment makes the component theory of forces a tangible reality for every student. The built-in digital scale reveals how the Normal Force component changes dependent upon the angle, and the spring scale hooked to the cart will demonstrate how the Downhill Parallel Force component changes as the angle of the inclined plane is varied.

Use our Deluxe Bicycle Wheel Gyroscope with this Rotating Platform to demonstrate the conservation of angular momentum. A spinning wheel will produce positive and negative angular momentum depending on which direction it faces. Demonstrate what happens by having your students stand on the Rotating Platform while holding a spinning wheel. The Rotating Platform can also be used with hand weights to study #rotationalinertia, conservation of #angularmomentum, and action-reaction. #physics
Calculate the acceleration due to gravity in a simple way with the g by Free Fall! The timer starts when the ball bearing is manually released from the release unit and stops the clock as the ball bearing hits the impact plate. Replace the ball bearing, reset the timer and the unit is ready to go again. Includes an integral vibration sensor in base unit, release clamp, 12mm ball bearing, 8mm ball bearing, and Instructional Guide. Millisecond timer (required) not included.
This easy-to-use and interactive kit allows students to experiment and understand the center of gravity for themselves. First, students use gravity and a cleverly designed plumb bob to locate the center of gravity of four different shapes. Then they use a simple but reliable method to check the accuracy of the predictions. This kit contains enough materials for 6 groups of students and a teacher demo set to test predictions. It also comes with an Instructional Guide and teacher support notes.
