We offer three different force sensors to visualize forces in friction, jumping, and roller coasters.
Best for experiments in the lab or field
3-axis accelerometer and Force sensor which can be used via USB or Bluetooth.
- Simple harmonic motion
- Impact in collisions
- Centripetal force
The Go Direct® Sensor Cart is a dynamics cart with a built-in force sensor, 3-axis accelerometer, and encoder wheel. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® to your device. Use it for hands-on kinematics and dynamics demonstrations or as an individual sensor.
