Newton's Laws Experiment - EX-5503A

EX5503A_MAIN.jpg

Overview

In this experiment designed for use with PASCO Capstone software, students use this collection of equipment to discover or experimentally determine the first of Newton's Laws.

  • Newton's First Law: Students examine an object's motion to see if it changes when forces are applied or not.
  • Newton's Second Law - Students use the Smart Cart to discover the relationships between force, mass and acceleration
  • Newton's Third Law - Using the force sensors from two Smart Carts, students prove that forces between objects are equal in magnitude yet opposite in direction. These experiments include both tug-of-war exercises and collisions between cars.

PASCO Advantage:
The Smart Cart has all the sensors required, making setup very quick and easy. The integration between the probeware and equipment helps students focus on the physics of each experiment.

Bluetooth 4 Connectivity

Required Software:

PASCO products that use Bluetooth® 4 technology - wireless sensors, smart carts, and the AirLink Interface - require the latest versions of our software. PASCO Capstone 1.10.1 is available for Mac and Windows. SPARKvue 3.0.1 is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chromebooks.

Compatibility/System requirements

Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth 4 devices. Also, any Windows 10 device w/ Creators Ediction 1703 or later will support direct connection.

All other windows computers/tablets, all Chromebooks and older Macs currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth 4 devices.
