Complete Physics Experiments

Classic Physics Experiments designed for use with a 550 or 850 Universal Interface and PASCO Capstone software.

Nearly 50 classic physics experiments using the power of PASCO software, probeware and lab equipment. These Capstone 'EX' experiments include the apparatus, sensors (when needed) and accessories - just add a universal interface and a license of PASCO Capstone software. Included with each 'EX' are experiment manuals and PASCO Capstone files. The experiment files are also available as free downloads.
