The Mechanical Waves Value Pack is an important addition the laboratory of any teacher who is passionate about the physics of waves or the physics of sound. The applications for these materials are far reaching and they provide analogies for several topics in Physics, Chemistry, and other sciences.
The Forces on an Inclined Plane Demonstrator is a new piece of physics equipment that can help make the abstract concepts of vector components of forces a tangible reality. The innovation of the device is that it can be manipulated at will. The angles can be set and reset quickly and the forces measured fairly quickly.
In this lab, students will learn to estimate the speed of an object by applying conservation of momentum to an inelastic collision. Energy is not lost its transferred from one object to another. Students will fire a dart into the back of the free rolling car and measure the distance of the car, calculate the speed of the dart and car, and measure the mass of the car and dart.
The Density Rod Set consists of two rods. The aluminum rod sinks in warm water and floats in cool. This is because cool water is more dense than warm, and the aluminum rod is made to be between those two densities. The PVC rod does the reverse – floats in warm water and sinks in cool. This time, the rod changes more than the water, becoming more dense when it is cool.
