Discover Friction Accessory

Product Code: ME-8574


PASCO’s Discover Friction Accessory is unlike any other friction set. The trays are designed to work effectively with PASCO carts and sensors. Using the four trays, students can discover concepts such as coefficient of friction, static friction, kinetic friction and the sliding friction equations. The two trays with identical plastic surfaces can be hooked together to explore the relationship between surface area and sliding frictional forces.


  • Easy Storage: friction trays are stackable, both for adjusting the pulling height and storage
  • Versatile: allow students to discover key friction concepts
  • Compatible: can be used with PASCO carts, masses and Force Sensors
