ME-8930   - 

A versatile cost-effective, portable way for making accurate time, speed, acceleration, and count measurements.

Overview

This system includes the versatile PASCO Smart Timer for making time, speed, acceleration, and count measurements--plus a convenient set of accessories. The microprocessor-based PASCO Smart Timer provides the most versatile way for making measurements and is low in cost and ready for use anywhere in the student lab.

The Smart Timer is useful in the field or in the classroom and works with other PASCO timing devices:

  • Accessory Photogate
  • Photogate/Pulley System
  • Time-of-Flight Accessory
  • Freefall Adapter
  • Laser Switch
  • G-M Tube

 

Typical Applications

  • Acceleration Due to Gravity*
  • Newton's Second Law*
  • Conservation of Momentum in Collisions*
  • Rotational Inertia of a Disk & Ring*
  • Acceleration Down an Incline
  • Simple Harmonic Oscillator
  • Oscillations on an Incline
  • Springs in Series and Parallel
  • Projectile Motion Using Photogates
  • Time-of-flight and Initial Velocity
  • Determining the Acceleration Due to Gravity
  • Counting Radiation with the G-M Tube

Special Features

  • More Than Just a Timer: Calculates speed and acceleration as well as measuring time.
  • Intuitive Operation: The menu-driven display mirrors the easy-to-follow flowchart on the Smart Timer label.
  • Quick Setup: Turn on the switch, plug in the photogates, and it's ready to use.
  • Increased Timing Accuracy: The redesigned 3-section fence (2 included) uses more accurate method of measurement from leading edge to leading edge.
  • Portable or Plug-in: The battery-operated (4 AA cells) Smart Timer can be used anywhere. It can also be operated on the 9 V AC adapter (included).
  • Calculation Lock-out Switch: A switch inside the battery compartment disables the speed and acceleration modes. Timing modes are unaffected, and students are required to do their own calculations.
