Showing 34 experiments that use the Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor.

High School / Physics

Newton's Second Law

Students measure the force on a cart and its resulting acceleration for a modified Atwood machine. They vary the weight on the hanger and create...

High School / Physics

Graphs of Motion

What do graphs of motion look like? The Smart Cart is a device that displays its motion—position, velocity, and acceleration—on your computer...

Middle School / Physical Science

Archimedes' Principle

In this lab, students will use force sensors to measure the change in gravitational force on an object in the air and on that same object immersed...

Middle School / Physical Science

Newton's First Law

In this lab, students will use motion and force sensors to determine how the change in an object’s motion is related to the force (push or...

Middle School / Physical Science

Newton's Third Law

In this lab, students will use two force sensors to measure a pair of oppositely directed forces.

Middle School / Physical Science

Simple Machines and Force

In this lab, students will use force sensors to measure the force required to lift a mass with varying configurations of fixed and moveable pulleys.

Middle School / Physical Science

Work and Mechanical Advantage

In this lab, students will use force sensors to measure the force required to lift a mass with varying configurations of fixed and moveable pulleys,...

Middle School / Life Science

Muscle Fatigue

In this lab, students will use force sensors to investigate and observe changes in the muscular movement of bones during a prolonged period of...

High School / STEM

Force

In this activity, students will use motion and force sensors to analyze the relationships between force, mass, and acceleration.

High School / STEM

Impact Force

In this activity, students will use force sensors to measure forces produced during a collision. Then, they'll use their data to determine the...
