Overview

The Hover Puck glides easily on a self-generated cushion of air until acted upon by an outside force.

  • Use one Hover Puck to demonstrate topics from Newton's First Law to collisions to reflection
  • Use two or more pucks to analyze the conservation laws in two dimensions
  • Set up a bowling alley using plastic drink bottles

Typical Applications

  • Inertia Activities -- The Hover Puck removes friction from its motion, which helps students better understand Newton's First Law
  • Newton's Second Law -- Students can apply various forces to the puck and record its acceleration with a Motion Sensor
  • 2D Collisions -- Use a video camera with video analysis software to record and analyze the motion of two pucks before and after a collision
