Conduct freefall experiments by dropping this Picket Fence through the PASCO Photogate.
The distance from the leading edge of each black bar to the leading edge of the next black bar is 5.0 cm. The Picket Fence has eight black bars and is 40 cm long.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD!
Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Photogates, fences, and timers are a staple of every physics lab. We’ve developed two standalone photogates, as well as two software-dependent options with varying capabilities and applications. This page compares our products’ functions, applications, and connectivity to help you select the perfect fit for your lab.
Perform the following experiments and more with the Picket Fence.

In this lab, students generate velocity vs. time graph for a picket fence free-falling through a Photogate. Then, students will use their graphs to determine the acceleration due to gravity.
A picket fence is dropped through a photogate and the slope of the graph of average velocity versus time gives the acceleration of the falling object.
