pendulum & simple harmonic motion

visitors this year: 177 A position sensor can be used to study this. The sensor is attached to a weight and spring assembly as shown. This can also be used to study the effects...

cart rolling down a slope

visitors this year: 324 A cart rolling down a hill certainly has energy which in turn affects its speed. But how does this speed change when you start the car off from a different...

simple harmonic motion

visitors this year: 32 Simple harmonic motion is rarely as simple as the lesson title implies. This potentiometer-based sensor measures angles as its core rotates. Attaching a ruler as shown (or hack saw blade)...

light gates and switches

visitors this year: 175 These are digital switches that record a time when triggered by say, a dynamics trolley or a card. When you enter parameters like distance or mass into the software, velocity,...
