High School Physics Recommended Equipment

Smart Cart Basic System

ME-5708

The carts can measure position, velocity, and acceleration along the path the cart is traveling. The attached hook is a force sensor that can measure +/- force to 100 N. This system can be used extensively to teach kinematics, and Newton’s Laws of Motion.  Because it can measure angular velocity it is great for a study of circular motion.

Super Pulley with Clamp

ME-9448B

This pulley clamps onto the end of the dynamics track and has very low friction. It can be used in experiments like Newton’s Second Law when the goal is to accelerate a cart on the track with a constant unbalanced force such as would be obtained by connecting a string to the cart, running it over the pulley and attaching a hook and mass to the other end.

550 Universal Interfce

UI-5001

Capable of high sampling rates of up to 2MHZ on one channel. Has a built-in signal generator with an output of up to +/- V at a current of 400 mA. The frequency range is DC to 100 kHz. Schools that purchase this device need not purchase separate signal generators or oscilloscopes. Accepts all Science Workshop and PasPort sensors.

  • Wireless Spectrometer Big Hit With Students – PASCO’s wireless spectrometer has been utilized very well by our earth science and physical science teachers. It’s an excellent piece of equipment and we have very much enjoyed its addition to enriching our classroom. It definitely brings students to a higher level of understanding wave interaction at a molecular level.

  • Excellent Smart Cart – I thought the cart was excellent. The quick sampling rate for force will be very useful for momentum and collision labs we do. I’m recommending we include this in our order for next school year.

    Reed Jeffrey | Science Department Head | Upper Canada College | Toronto ON

  • Your lab equipment is of the highest quality and technical support is always there to help. During the 25 years we have used a wide array of lab equipment including computer interfacing. Your Pasco line has a high profile in our lab and will continue to do so far into the future.

  • Datalogging Activities are Cross-Curricular

    Throughout the province of Nova Scotia, PASCO’s probeware technology has been merged with the rollout of the new P-6 curriculum. We chose a number of sensors for use with our project-based activities. Both the functionality and mobility of PASCO’s dataloggers enable students to collect authentic, real-world data, test their hypotheses and build knowledge.

  • We have a large number of PASCO wireless spectrometers and love how they have improved the learning experience for our students.

  • During distance learning due to COVID-19 school shut down, I was given a short window to collect what I could from my classroom to teach online. The PASCO wireless sensors and Smart Carts were my top priority to collect to implement distance learning. By sharing experimental data with students via SPARKVue, the sensors were pivotal in creating an online experience that still allowed students to grow with their lab skills. It was easy to record videos of the data collection and share the data with my students. They did a phenomenal job examining and interpreting the data.
