Inclined Plane Dynamics Set - ME-6966



PASCO's Inclined Plane Dynamics Set includes everything needed to use the included PAStrack or any of your existing PAStracks to create an incline plane and perform classic dynamics experiments.  

Each 1 m PAStrack separates into two 50 cm sections for easy storage.  But in this instance you can use that same capability along with the Inclined Plane Accessory (ME-6965) to use one section as a base and the other as your inclined plane segment.

The built in scale on the PAStrack and the protractor on the Incline Plane Accessory guarantee accurate measurements.  And as with every PAStrack set, it is designed from the ground up to work with probeware, such as snapping on a motion sensor or using the included picket fences and photogate brackets to study the motion of the GOcar as it passes through a photogate (photogates sold separately).  

Additional masses, friction blocks and spring set provide even more accessories to perform the 5 copy ready labs in the manual or in your own experiments.

Five complete lab activities included

As always, you can use the PAStrack by itself as a 1 m long straight track. Along with the other accessories there are endless applications for the PAStrack. But we have also included in the manual for the Inclined Plane Dynamics Set five copy-ready labs designed specifically for use with this set.

  • Acceleration Down an Incline Plane
  • Newton's 2nd Law
  • Friction
  • Oscillations on an Inclined Plane
  • Series and Parallel Springs
