|This complete set includes an inclined plane with a pulley and
protractor, a Hall’s carriage, a hanging pan to hold the desired
weight, two wooden boards of different sizes, and a metal plate.
The set is used to demonstrate the resolution of forces on an
inclined plane, uniform and accelerated motions, kinetic and
potential energies, and the friction between two surfaces. The
wooden inclined board is 60 cm long and 10 cm wide. It can be set
at any angle between 0° and 45°. The two scales on the
protractor allow angle measurements to be made directly or by
trigonometry. Students can determine the coefficients of static
and sliding friction and verify the normal and frictional
components of the force exerted by the plane. The aluminum wheel
and cone bearings on the Hall’s carriage help minimize friction
on the inclined plane.
Includes an activity guide.
