 Comprehensive 850 Physics System Experiment Manual - UI-5813 Newton's 2nd Law is one of 87 experiments detailed in this experiment manual.

Overview

The experiments in this manual are designed to use the Comprehensive 850 Physics System and the 850 Universal Interface. The experiments are written in PASCO Capstone Workbooks, so teachers can easily modify them to fit their needs.

Note: This manual is included in both the 850 Comprehensive Physics System (UI-5800B) and the 850 Comprehensive Mechanics System (UI-5801).

PASCO Capstone workbook files with sample data are supplied for each experiment. PASCO Capstone workbook files are manuals in electronic form with step-by-step instructions and interactive displays and analysis tools.

The experiments are written on the level of advanced high school or introductory college physics.

Downloads:  Every experiment is available in the Resources section below. Each .zip file contains Capstone files as well as editable Word files for each lab.
