PSworks Marble Ramp
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

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 experiment is performed by using the ramp as a projectile launcher. Students rotate the ramp so the curved end is at the edge of a tabletop. Engaging hands-on activities allow students to:

• Calculate instantaneous speed
• Determine acceleration
• Explore conservation of energy
• Investigate projectile motion
• Compare experimental and theoretical values

Precision-cut track is made of durable, high-quality wood. Complete instructions are provided. Flinn PSworks Support Stand and Photogate Timer are required and available separately.
