Features over 30 inquiry based labs covering the core topic areas of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermodynamics and more.
Use a force sensor to develop a kinesthetic understanding of circular motion by measuring the period of rotation of a mass in uniform circular motion.
The majority of the experiences your students will have in mechanics center around linear systems. This experiment helps students make the transition from a linear frame of reference to a circular frame of reference. Students:
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
Rubber stopper #10 one-hole
String ~ 3 m
This experiment may require software and an interface for data collection.
