VERNIER DUAL RANGE FORCE SENSOR
The Vernier Dual-Range Force Sensor is a general purpose sensor for measuring pushing and pulling forces. Study friction, simple harmonic motion, impact in collisions or centripetal force.
Two ranges allow the measurement of forces as small as 0.01 newtons and as large as 50 newtons.

It can be used in a broad range of ways:
• As a replacement for a hand-held spring scale
• Mounted horizontally on a dynamics cart to study collisions
• Mounted on a ring-stand to measure forces in a vertical direction
• Collect data from two Force Sensors simultaneously to study Newton’s Third Law

Requirements:
This sensor requires suitable software and an interface such as one of the Vernier LabQuest variations or Vernier Go-Link.
For comprehensive details of the possible sensor/interface/software combinations see the Compatibility Guide link below.

Specifications:
• ± 10N Range Resolution: 0.01N
• ± 50N Range Resolution: 0.05N

Included:
• Dual-Range Force Sensor
• Hook
• Bumper
• Nylon thumb screw
• Accessory Rod

      What a drag Vernier dual force sensor


      This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
      ACSSU190 - Physical Sciences - Energy Conservation - Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
      ACSSU229 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Motion - The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics
      ACSPH066 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Collisions may be elastic and inelastic; kinetic energy is conserved in elastic collisions
      ACSPH065 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Energy is conserved in isolated systems and is transferred from one object to another when a force is applied over a distance; this causes work to be done and changes to kinetic and/or potential energy of objects
      ACSPH064 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Momentum is a property of moving objects; it is conserved in a closed system and may be transferred from one object to another when a force acts over a time interval
      ACSPH063 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Newton’s Three Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the force or forces acting on an object, modelled as a point mass, and the motion of the object due to the application of the force or forces
      ACSSU033 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape
      ACSSU076 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance
      ACSSU117 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Machines - Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object
