cart rolling down a slope

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 point on the hill....

accelerometer, dynamics pulley

Accelerometers contain the tiny chip sensors often used as triggers for car air bags. You can take one of these sensors into a lift, fix one to a dynamics trolley to look at collisions...

light gates and switches

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, acceleration or momentum are...
