# 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.

### Shoot the Target

ME-6853

This target can be placed so that the ball will strike the target as it falls every time no matter what the launch velocity.

### Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor

PS-3202

Measures +/- 50 N and has a higher resolution than the force sensor on the smart cart. The sensor can be used in place of a force scale and when used in pairs can be used to verify Newton’s Third Law of motion. The built in 3 axis gyroscope allows it to measure angular velocity so circular motion can be studied.
