Overview

The sturdy glass-filled nylon platform is supported by 4 force beams which combine to measure the total force on the platform.

  • Large jumping and landing surface
  • Rugged design
  • Force Overload Protection

Typical Applications

  • Determine "hang time" by jumping up from the platform, then landing on it
  • Measure impulse and maximum force when jumping
  • Use two Force Platforms to investigate Newton's 3rd Law as two students push against each other
  • Measure the normal force on a person riding in an elevator
  • Use a Motion Sensor and a bouncing ball to compare the impulse and change in momentum as the ball collides with the platform
