A complete solution for mechanics study on a budget!

An air track is one of the most fundamental components of the physics lab. Its near-frictionless surface gives students hands-on experience with the basic concepts of velocity, acceleration, momentum, collisions, and conservation of energy. This 1.2-meter air track system is accessible even for tighter budgets.

Products being sold are not toys. They are for Educational / Labratory use only. They are not for use by children 12 and under.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS2-1
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.
MS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
MS-PS3-1
Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
MS-PS3-5
Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
HS-PS2-1
Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
HS-PS2-2
Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.
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 motions of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects).
