Vernier Software & Technology has launched the new Go DirectSensor Cart for middle school, high school, and college physics students. The wireless dynamics cart allows students to explore force, position, velocity, and acceleration using Bluetooth wireless technology.
Go Direct Sensor Cart can be used for hands-on kinematics and dynamics demonstrations, but the built-in sensors can also be used independently.An encoder wheel reports position, velocity, and acceleration. Attach the cart to a turntable to study centripetal acceleration using the 3-axis accelerometer. Hang a mass and spring from the ±50 N force sensor to study simple harmonic motion or measure pushes and pulls.
Additional features include mass trays for adding mass, a plunger for collision and impulse studies, low-friction wheels for uniform motion, and exchangeable magnetic and hook-and-pile inserts for elastic and inelastic collisions.
