The Smart Cart Vector Display adds visual vectors to your Smart Cart for Force, Acceleration, or Velocity. Connect to the Smart Cart’s accessory port to Visualize vectors in real time!
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Smart Cart Vector Display adds visual vectors to your Smart Cart for Force, Acceleration, or Velocity. Connect to the Smart Cart’s accessory port to visualize vectors in real time! The arrows light up proportional to the sensor reading and indicate both magnitude and positive or negative direction.
- Choose from Force, Acceleration, or Velocity vectors and watch them in real time.
- Students can visualize constant acceleration as a cart rolls up and then down an incline.
- Great for the student lab station or for a physics lecture demonstration!
- Selectable ranges

Hold Smart Cart with Smart Vector Display in hand and spin around to show centripetal acceleration toward center of rotation.
This demonstration uses a Smart Cart Vector Display to see the forces and accelerations.
A Smart Cart with Smart Vector Display is attached to a spring on an incline. Mark the equilibrium point. View and compare the velocity, acceleration, and force vectors as the cart oscillates.
Two Smart Carts with Vector Displays are placed at rest with their rubber bumpers against each other. The forces are equal and opposite on two carts that are being pushed at rest. Then the two carts are pushed back and forth:...
While viewing the Force on Smart Cart Vector Display, the cart collides with the end stop with the magnetic bumper and then with an added paper bumper. Both collisions have about the same change in velocity and thus the impulses...
Collide two Smart Carts of equal mass: As viewed on the Vector Displays, the forces are equal and opposite and the accelerations are equal and opposite. Collide two carts of unequal mass: The forces are equal and opposite but...
