Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Explore the fundamentals of force and motion with the Flinn PSworks Carriage and Ramp.

Students will also be able to verify the mechanical advantage of an inclined plane—the simplest of simple machines. An extension rod is provided to support the ramp over the edge of a tabletop, which allows the hanging weights to fall and move the carriage over the entire length of the ramp.
