This lets you alter the initial velocity, mass, and angle of a frictionless
Lets you study the range equation in a "golf" like setting.
A bit more of a challenge when you use the "air" option.
The basic air track with two blocks. You can change the coefficient
of restitution, initial masses, and velocities.
Put several masses on a see-saw in an effort to balance the system.
Have you ever wanted a pendulum and a mass on a spring next to each
other on planets with a g different than Earth's?
Lets you deal with 2D elastic/inelastic collisions on a flat (or tilted)
table, and even use magnetic pucks!
Harmonic Motion (1 mass)
Apply a small driving force to a mass between two spring. Helps you
understand natural and resonant frequencies.
Harmonic Motion (2 masses)
Similar to above, but with an additional mass and spring. You can observe
different modes of resonance.
Another module with a vibrating mass.
Did you ever think of all the physics involved when you drop a ball
(or an expensive plate)?
A lab where you can learn about rotational inertia.
Why do some things float and others don't? Learn about mass, volume,
If a log is 2 m in radius and 10 m long, how much weight can I put on
it? Find out here.
on A Wing
A very simple illustration of the force on an airplane wing.
The classic example firing directly towards a falling target. Due to
the laws of physics it is rather hard to miss.
"Build it and they will come," or at least "they"
will show you where the center of mass is located as you add small blocks
of mass to a large field.
