Equipment kit for all of the hands-on labs within the Essential Physics Curriculum and/or the Comprehensive Physics Investigations lab manual.
See the Product Description for this item's included accessories.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
This kit is designed to support all of the sensor-based, hands-on lab investigations within the Essential Physics 3rd Edition Curriculum, as well as the Comprehensive Physics Investigations lab manual. This kit includes enough equipment for a full year of investigations in a standard, algebra-based physics course.
Elements of this system require software to collect and display data.
Battery and Logging
|Elements of this system have rechargeable, internal batteries|
|Elements of this system can connect through BT 4.0|
1 Minimum # of data points with all measurements enabled, actual results depend on enabled measurements.
2 Continuous use in a connected state until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.
3 Logging until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.
* Normal classroom use is the sensor in active use for 20min/lab for 120 lab periods/yr.

When the Egyptians built their massive pyramids, they faced the engineering challenge of how to lift the heavy stone blocks vertically into position. The Egyptians may have moved the blocks up ramps (or inclined planes) constructed...
How is the work done on a system related to its change in energy? How is the efficiency of a system calculated? Have you ever pulled a swing back and let it go? The work you do to pull the swing backward and upward is converted...
How are force, distance, and work related graphically? To lift a mass, you must do work on it against the gravitational force.
What is acceleration and how does it relate to speed and velocity? A car rolling down a ramp accelerates. A car given an initial velocity up a ramp accelerates at the same rate!
If you look at yourself in a mirror, then where is your image located?
