Product Details

An inclined plane is an essential tool for every physical science classroom. Use this four-foot-long, heavy-duty metal inclined plane to demonstrate and study frictional forces, potential and kinetic energy, and constant acceleration. Tough enough to support a fully loaded dynamics cart. Includes a 12" long metal support rod and adjustable-height pulley system. A clamp holder is required to support the inclined plane on a ring stand and is sold separately. Dimensions: 48" × 6".

Performance Expectations

MS-PS3-2. Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
MS-ETS1-2. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
HS-PS3-2. Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motion of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects).
