This kit is designed to provide a cost-effective system for the study of all aspects of dynamics in a virtually friction-free environment. It is particularly effective in the field of collisions where conservation of momentum is dramatically demonstrated. The kit contains everything required for a vast array of experiments covering: velocity; force and acceleration; potential energy; kinetic energy; conservation of energy; SHM; motion on level and inclined planes etc. The track itself measures 2 metres overall and is made from strong 56 x 56mm extruded aluminium. Gliders are designed to accept standard slotted masses for additional loads. It is supplied with a comprehensive accessory pack to facilitate every type of interaction.
An air source is required to operate the track, which can be provided by a vacuum cleaner or our Laboratory Air Blower (code: LINBLO) which is not included. It is supplied with a range of accessories including vehicles with mass attachments, catapults and buffers. For measurement of glider speeds, standard light gates and timers are required. ( LINTRC )
