Description:This is the only tool of it kind in the world! Designed by Doc FIzzix to accurately find a mousetrap's spring constant. Once you know the spring constant you can also calculate a mousetrap's starting potential energy, efficiency, power output, work, friction, and so much more. Student can compare their vehicle starting energy with others in order to make prediction about their vehicles performance. Lab activities are included.
- easy to use
- accurately find starting energy
- Perfect for all vehicle projects
- Everything you need in one package
How it works:A string attached at the bottom of a disk and fitted into a groove along the top is pulled downward with a force probe or a spring scale. The student records the pulling force for every five-degree increment marked on the disk. The direction of the force does not change, so the scale does not need to be zeroed at different positions. The Torsion Wheel is made of durable, high quality plastic. Lab activities are included.
Includes the following:
- Torsion Wheel
- Lab activities guide
- force probe or spring scale
- large C-clamp
Weight : 2.1 oz.
