Rotating Platform – Centripetal Force Accessory

SKU: ME-8094 Category:



  • Transmitting data wirelessly eliminates friction
  • Uses Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor
  • Vary speed, radius, and mass

The Wireless Centripetal Force Accessory is a low friction sliding mass holder that connects to a Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor (PS-3202). When installed on a Rotating Platform (ME-8951), it provides a simple and direct measurement of centripetal force and acceleration. Vary the mass using the holed masses in the Mass and Hanger Set (ME-8979). The string length is easily adjusted to vary the radius.
