Standard Force Table, 40cm Diameter
Item # 93-3538
Study the equilibrium of force with this very stable, superbly-designed, and highly-functional table. Supplied with precision pulleys, force rings, cords, weights, and instructions. A must-have to study vector physics!
A vector quantity is a quantity which has direction as well as magnitude.
Demonstrate vector addition and components of force with this very stable, superbly-designed, and highly-functional Force Table. Measure vector forces and angles with clear visibility and understanding. Supplied with precision pulleys, force rings, cords, weights, and instructions. A must-have to study vector physics!
This Force Table allows you to measure vector forces and angles with clear visibility and understanding. When the forces are balanced, the system is in static equilibrium. This can be achieved by easily arranging each pulley around the table's edge and adjusting the weight on each cord until the ring is centered on the Force Table and forces are balanced.
Any given force must act in some particular direction. A body may be acted on several forces at one time and each may act in a different direction. Their net effect will depend on the direction in which each one acts and the magnitude of each. Use this Force Table to visually demonstrate this theory.
