With our Picket Fence Activity, you can demonstrate acceleration and gravity to your students in a way they’ll finally understand! This hands-on activity demonstrates that any object’s acceleration due to gravity is the same – and proves it. The Gravity Guru lets students see this for themselves!
Students drop a polycarbonate picket fence through the photogate apparatus. Then, they check out the data recorded on the computer: velocity, time, and acceleration. The software makes the calculations and displays them in a variety of graphs.
A great activity for explaining one of the most fundamental theories in science, the Gravity Guru will become a new favorite in your class! Includes WIN 7/8-compatible CD-ROM, two picket fences (one fence is half the weight of the other), a photogate box, and instructions.
System requires one available USB port.
