Barton’s pendulums is a well known resonance effect but usually difficult to set up and store. This apparatus stores flat and can be quickly unfolded to show the resonance between similar length pendulums. Once the demonstration is over it can be closed up again to safely store the pendulum arrangement until required again.
Product code: LA30-070
This add-on tube extends the barrel of the basic Vacuum Bazooka which means the accelerating force is applied for a longer time. The corresponding increase in momentum can be explored as part of an investigation into the impulse equation in mechanics.
The Digital Boyle’s Law Apparatus provides a self contained, reliable and simple way of demonstrating Boyle’s Law. The volume may be reduced or increased by means of a 2.5ml syringe connected to a digital pressure sensor.
Visually and effectively demonstrate the relationship between temperature and pressure. The Digital Jolly Bulb is the perfect alternative to the traditional bulb and analogue gauge, pressures can be read directly from the built in digital display and the apparatus is sensitive enough to register an increase in pressure when the bulb is held gently in the hand.
A bycycle dynamo mounted on a strong acrylic base with rubber rimmed drive wheel. The dynamo can power torch bulbs and a bulb and holder is fitted to the base to provide a compact and self-contained unit for demonstrating mechanical to electrical to light energy transfers.
A flexible surface made from durable PVC measuring 120 × 1220 × 3mm with 5mm side walls. The track can be used for creating curved or sloping tracks for use with small vehicles in roller-coaster type situations. Tracks can be linked together using the plates provided.
A sturdy base fitted with a low friction pulley provides the basis for investigations into dynamic friction between sliding surfaces. The carriage can support any applied load and the frictional force to move the carriage can be measured by applying weights to a string passing over the pulley in the usual way.
Use in conjunction with an accurate millisecond timer to calculate acceleration due to gravity. The timer starts when the ball bearing is released from the release unit, the base has an integral vibration sensor which stops the clock as the ball bearing hits the impact plate. Replace the ball bearing, reset the timer and the unit is ready to go again.
The gravity well is an exciting piece of apparatus which allows students to visualise the attraction of massive objects due to gravity.
Consisting of a flexible sheet and collapsible frame, the gravity well is supplied with all you need to bring the study of gravity to life.
Traditional hardwood trolleys on three double row ball bearing wheels for exceptional free running. Wheels are set back from main body of chassis to reduce the chance of collision damage and a flat top is provided to allow the trolleys to be stacked in order to double mass.
