PASCO Dynamics Systems have been a staple in physics labs for over 25 years. They are an ideal way of investigating mechanics - from velocity and acceleration to Newton’s Laws and Forces to Collisions and Conservation of Momentum and Energy.
Numerous optional accessories expand that functionality even further into harmonic motion, projectile motion, optics and more.
Today you have your choice of tracks (expandable and rugged polycarbonate plastic in 1 m lengths or classic aluminum in 1.2 m or 2.2 m lengths) as well as plastic carts, aluminum carts or a pair of the revolutionary new Smart Carts. You can also choose whether or not to add the accessories package.
This configuration - The Basic PAScar/Metal Track 1.2 System is made up of plastic carts and a 1.2 m aluminum track without the accessories package.
Dynamics Systems provide an engaging and affordable method for physics educators to teach a variety of complex concepts. We offer a variety of cart and track options that enable educators to personalize their Dynamics System, while staying within their budget. Compare our cutting-edge carts, sleek and expandable tracks, and various price points to determine which system suits your applications.
Perform the following experiments and more with the Basic PAScar Metal Track 1.2 m System.

A force is applied directly to the cart by pulling and pushing on the attached Force Sensor. The resulting acceleration is measured by the Motion Sensor, and the analysis of a Force vs. Acceleration graph allows the concept of...
In this lab, students will investigate the relationship between position and velocity using a Motion Sensor to measure the position of a motorized cart.
In this lab, students will generate graphs of position and velocity for a cart accelerating down an incline. Then, they'll compare their user-defined curve fits to the standard equations of motion.
