Designing and Testing Crash Cushions
Students measure the acceleration of a cart as it collides with a solid barrier and a simple crash cushion. Students use their data and Newton's Second Law to help design and build an improved crash cushion that reduced the maximum acceleration experienced in a second collision.PreviewDownload

The Wireless 3-Axis Acceleration/Altimeter can remotely log acceleration in three dimensions and altitude, making it ideal for recording data during roller coaster rides.
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.
