See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The //code.Node Cart is a four-wheeled cart into which fits the //code.Node. The //code.Node reads the velocity of the //code.Node Cart by detecting the spinning magnet on the cart axle. The low-friction wheels are spring-loaded to protect them if the cart falls off the table.
The //code.Node Cart is also useful without the //code.Node as a simple dynamics cart. A motion sensor can be used to track the motion of the cart..
- Low-friction spring-loaded wheels

- Four slots for optional 50-gram masses
- Threaded hole for attaching bumpers
- String tie points on front and rear
- Designed to fit any PASCO dynamics track
- Display arrow on //code.Node LED array to indicate direction of acceleration
- Kinematics Experiments
- Make //code.Node beep when a certain speed is exceeded
How It Works
The //code.Node Cart is a four-wheeled cart into which fits the //code.Node. There is a magnet on one of the axles that rotates with the axle and the //code.Node magnetic field sensor reads the spinning field and interprets it as a velocity. The direction of the spin is detected using the two axes of the magnetic field sensor. This reading is reported as position and velocity under the Motion Sensor.

Perform the following experiments and more with the //code.Node Cart.
Visit PASCO's Experiment Library to view more activities.
Students will investigate how a weight drop launch style of roller coaster works using a //code.Node Cart. Additionally, they will create a Blockly program that triggers data recording to stop once a negative velocity is reached.
Students will investigate speed and velocity using the //code.Node Cart. Using the data they collect, they will create a two Blockly challenge programs.
Students will explore Newton's laws of motion using the //code.Node Cart to measure velocity and observing what occurs when it comes to a sudden stop.They will also use Blockly to create a program that counts down to the release...
Students will calculate the circumference of the //code.Node Cart wheels in order to solve problems as well as create two Blockly coding programs.
