Dual-Range Force Sensor, B3-1100.00, £131.20
The Dual-Range Force Sensor is a general purpose device for measuring forces. It has been adapted from the Vernier range to run on the ALBA system.
It can be used as a replacement for a hand-held spring scale, or it can be mounted in a stand. It can be mounted on a dynamics cart to study impulse/collisions.
It can measure pushes and pulls. There are two ranges: ±10N and ±50N.
Possible areas of study include:
- Studying force and impulse during collision
- Monitoring friction forces
- Hooke's Law
- Archimede's Principle
- Forces in a lift.
The Dual Range Force Sensor can be used in conjunction with the Air Track and Dynamics Track Adaptors.
