Momentum And Impulse
In this lab, students use a motion sensor, force sensor, and dynamics system to investigate the relationship between the change in momentum of a cart undergoing a collision and the impulse imparted to the cart to change its momentum, and then use their data to establish a measurement-based relationship between change in momentum and impulse.Preview Download

The Wireless Motion Sensor uses ultrasound to measure the position, velocity, and acceleration of objects.
The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.
Fastens to the T-Slot of a Dynamics track and accepts a 1/2 inch rod.
This bracket fastens to the T-Slot of a dynamics track and securely holds the Force Sensor for measuring collisions with a cart.
The Basic Smart Cart/PAStrack system is made up of Wireless Smart Carts and a plastic 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.
