Set of four pendula (brass, plastic, wood, and aluminum) that are ideal for PASCO’s Photogate Head and Photogate Accessory in timing experiments.
See the Product Description for this item's included accessories.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Photogate Pendulum Set is a unique set of four pendulums that have the same shape and size, but different masses. Due to their cylindrical shape, these pendulums are ideal for use in timing experiments with the photogate. One pendulum each of brass, plastic, wood, and aluminum is included.
- Determine relationship between period and mass
- Determine relationship between period and amplitude
- Determine relationship between period and length
- 1x Brass pendulum
- 1x Aluminum pendulum
- 1x Plastic pendulum
- 1x Wood pendulum
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD!
Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
