Sliding Friction Experiment

Product Code: EX-5508

Description

In this experiment, students use a High Resolution Force Sensor to discover frictional forces and their effect on the motion of an object. In addition, the coefficients of friction for various surface combinations can be empirically determined.

Designed for use with any of the following

  • 850 Universal Interface
  • 550 Universal Interface
  • Any PASPORT interface with 2 ports

Concepts

  • Relationship between frictional force and normal force
  • Coefficients of friction (kinetic and static)
