EQUIPMENT FOR STUDYING ROTATIONAL MOTION.
EQUIPMENT FOR STUDYING ROTATIONAL MOTION This system enables to carry out a wide range of tests on centripetal force, on angular momentum and on rotational motion. Provided with a unique set of accessories, this is the ideal tool for tests on couple, friction and on Faraday’s law. The differences of the moment of inertia are high enough to be perceived by students even when they turn the system manually. Proper adapters enable to mount sensors for supervising angular position, speed and acceleration. A motor can be connected to a support in order to impart a continuous rotation. TRAINING PROGRAM • rotational inertia of a disk and of a ring – two axes • centripetal force • rotational inertia of a (fi xed and turning) offset disk • conservation of angular momentum, with a mass point • rotational inertia of a mass point • conservation of angular momentum, projectile version • conservation of angular momentum, with disk and ring This system uses a rotation sensor, a pair of photogate sensors and a force sensor connected with datalogger and, consequently, with a PC Workspace software. COMPONENTS • turning platform • disk • ring • adapters • pulley and rod • masses • chronometer • springs • accessories for studying centripetal force 1 PAIR OF PHOTOGATE SENSORS 1 ROTATION SENSOR WITH ENCODER 1 FORCE SENSOR
