Vernier Centripetal Force Apparatus

VERNIER CENTRIPETAL FORCE APPARATUS
Vernier's Centripetal Force Apparatus allows you to investigate the relationship between centripetal force, angular velocity, mass and radius.

A force sensor measures the centripetal force exerted on a mass as it moves in a circle. A photogate can be used to measure the angular speed. Different masses can be added to the platform and positioned at variable radii. The platform can be driven by a falling mass.
The apparatus also accommodates the Vernier Wireless Dynamic Sensor System to measure force, which provides the best set of data.

Sensors are sold separately.




Note: Due to its size and weight this product attracts extra freight costs.

Rectangular Frame
Support Legs x 2
Rotating Assembly consisting of Rotational Shaft, Encoder Wheel, 3-Step Pulley, Rotating Beam, Bearing Housing
Sliding Carriage to hold the test masses
Counterbalance Carriage to balance the rotating beam
Swivel Assembly to connect Sliding Carriage to a Dual-Range Force Sensor
Ultra Pulley
Ultra Pulley Bracket (preinstalled on Assembly)
Photogate Bracket with 1/4 x 20 mounting screw (preinstalled on Assembly)
Dual-Range Force Sensor Bracket (preinstalled on Assembly)
50g masses x 4
100g masses x 4
Hook to attach a Wireless Dynamic Sensor System to the Sliding Carriage
WDSS Mounting Screw and T Nut to secure a WDSS
