Inertia and the Second Law
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 "inertia" to be quantified.Preview Download
This bundle includes all the equipment and sensors needed to perform the experiments in the Comprehensive 850 Mechanics System Experiment Manual.
The PASPORT High Resolution Force Sensor is designed to make very high resolution measurements of pulling and pushing forces.
The PASPORT Motion Sensor accurately measures the position, velocity, and acceleration of a target. It can be used to track the motion of balls, carts, people, and more.
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.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
