The Standard Smart Cart Metal Track 1.2 m System includes two Wireless Smart Carts, a 1.2 m aluminum track, and the accessories package.
See the Product Description for this item's included accessories.
PASCO Dynamics Systems have been a staple in physics labs for over 25 years. They are ideal for investigating mechanics topics, such as velocity and acceleration, Newton’s Laws and Forces, Collisions, and the Conservation of Momentum and Energy. With the included accessories, students can explore harmonic motion, projectile motion, optics, and much more. This configuration includes Wireless Smart Carts, a 1.2 m aluminum track, and the accessories package.
We offer expandable, rugged 1.0 m polycarbonate plastic tracks, as well as classic aluminum tracks with lengths of 1.2 m and 2.2 m. Our cart options include plastic carts, aluminum carts, and Smart Carts. You may also choose to add the accessories package.
