Modeling the Force of Friction
Students measure the force of kinetic and static friction between a friction tray and dynamics track using a wireless force sensor. They vary the weight of the tray to gather five data points and create a model for kinetic friction. They use their model top predict the force of kinetic and static friction and then test their prediction.PreviewDownload

The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.
Four plastic trays with unique surfaces (cork, felt, and 2 plastic) to use with dynamics carts and sensors.
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.
