Overview

PASCO digital timers are used in thousands of physics labs throughout the world. They are rugged and simple to operate.  Combine the photogate timer with an Accessory Photogate. It plugs directly into the Photogate Timer and triggers the timer in the same manner as the built-in photogate.

In Pulse Mode, the Accessory Photogate lets you measure the time it takes for an object to travel between two photogates. In Gate mode, it lets you measure the velocity of the object as it passes through the first photogate, and then again when it passes through the second photogate.

Ten ready-to-use experiments are included in the Photogate Timer's Manual, showing a variety of ways in which you can use the Photogate Timer. The equipment requirements vary for different experiments. 

Typical Applications

  • Instantaneous versus Average Velocity
  • Kinematics on an Inclined Plane
  • Speed of a Projectile
  • Newton's Second Law
  • The Force of Gravity
  • Conservation of Momentum
  • Kinetic Energy
  • Conservation of Mechanical Energy
  • Elastic-Kinetic Energy
  • Pendulum Motion

Special Features

  • Built-in Photogate -- timer serves as the base
  • Selectable Resolution -- switch-selectable 1.0 ms or 0.1 ms resolution
  • Accuracy -- Quartz crystal clock provides accuracy to 0.05% of full range of the measured time +/- 1 digit.
  • Memory -- allows 2 measurements which must be made in rapid succession, such as pre-collision and post-collision velocity
  • Easy Setup -- turn it on and begin taking measurements
  • Portable or plug-in -- Use included 9 V AC adapter or use 4 "C" cells (not included)
