Puck Set, Air

AP6917

It's time to get moving! Explore Newton's laws of motion and get everyone involved with this classroom set of 30 air pucks. No need for an air table-the pucks float on a cushion of air above any smooth, flat surface as a result of air escaping from a...

Puck Set, Balloon

AP5619

Effectively and economically explore the laws of motion without an air table. Study inertia, constant velocity and acceleration, and collisions in two dimensions. Air escaping from the inflated balloons allows these plastic pucks to levitate above an...

Acceleration Trolley

AP6487

Vividly illustrate acceleration with this large-scale inclined plane. Attach the wire cable to the edges of the blackboard, or string it between the walls of the classroom. The low-friction pulleys give the durable, plastic trolley a smooth ride alon...

Investigating Pendulums - Student Laboratory Kit

AP6282

What determines the period of a pendulum's swing? Is it the weight of the plumb bob, the length of the pendulum, or the height at which it is set in motion? Flinn's quick and easy setup allows students to run a variety of experiments to discover the ...

PSworks Pendulum

AP7000

Clearly demonstrate simple harmonic motion and the conservation of energy with this large, easy-to-see pendulum setup. Students will unmistakably see the pendulum swing evenly from side to side in simple harmonic motion. Use the Flinn PSworks Photoga...

Pendulum Clamp

AP5695

Suspend three pendulums at one time with this specially designed pendulum clamp. Its rigid support arm is screwed to a rod clamp to assure perpendicular rigidity and stability throughout your experiments. You can be assured that your pendulum recordi...

Plumb Bobs, 1⁄2 oz, Pkg. of 12

AP6413

Accurately measure tilt angles for inclined planes or projectile-launching devices with these inexpensive plumb bobs. Simply tie theplumb bob to a string and secure the string to the angled apparatus. Then, measure the angle between the vertically ha...

Plumb Bobs, 1-3⁄4 oz, Pkg. of 12

AP7939

Accurately measure tilt angles for inclined planes or projectile-launching devices with these inexpensive plumb bobs. Simply tie theplumb bob to a string and secure the string to the angled apparatus. Then, measure the angle between the vertically ha...

Foucault’s Pendulum

AP7862

In 1851, Jean Bernard Leon Foucault demonstrated the rotation of the Earth with a 27-kg pendulum suspended on a 67-m wire at the Pantheon in Paris. This was the first direct evidence that the Earth rotates around a polar axis. Ever since, Foucault pe...

Rubber Band Cannon - Student Laboratory Kit

AP6624

Shooting rubber bands is a favorite pastime for many students. Now, give your students the chance to safely use their rubber band firing skills while learning about the properties of falling objects and projectile motion. This is a laboratory experie...

Modeling Projectile Motion

AP7039

Visibly demonstrate the parabolic path of a projectile with this simple model. Use the model to illustrate many concepts in dynamics. Small weights hang at different distances below a meter stick to show how the location of an object changes every 0....

Projectile Motion with an Inclined Plane - Super Value Laboratory Kit

AP6755

Students gain knowledge of projectile motion and the law of conservation of energy as they determine the launch speed of a steel sphere after it rolls down an inclined plane. The lab activity also reinforces the concepts of Newton’s laws of motion, k...

PSworks Marble Ramp

AP7071

Two-in-one dynamics apparatus! Using the PSworks Photogate Timer, students record the transit times of a marble at different positions along the marble ramp. A convenient catcher at the bottom of the ramp stops the ball after each trial. A second exp...

PSworks Parabola

AP7208

Clearly convince your students that a projectile follows a parabolic path! Launch a ball bearing using the unique launching mechanism, and watch the ball skim the surface of the track which is in the shape of a parabola. Connect the optional PSworks ...

Ballistics Car

AP4637

A classic attention-getter that gives key motion concepts visual meaning. Simple to operate-just place the ball in the spring-loaded cylinder and set the car in motion on a smooth, level surface. A quick pull on the release pin causes the ball to fly...

Marble Launcher

AP7800

Durable apparatus to study velocity, acceleration, and projectile motion. Marbles can be launched from five different speeds at any angle between 0 and 90°. Velocity of the marble can range from 3 m/s to 9 m/s. Easy-to-read protractor allows for prec...

Projectile Launcher

AP5696

Easy to set up, repeatable results, unbreakable. These are the qualities you need in an apparatus for your projectile motion experiments. This all-metal launcher can be clamped to any lab table, at any angle from -15º to 90º, in a matter of seconds. ...

Trajectory Apparatus
