C5-11: AIR TRACK - ACTION-REACTION PAIRS

Additional Info

  • ID Code: C5-11
  • Purpose: Demonstrate Newton's third law of motion
  • Description: Two gliders (either M and 2M or M and M) are tied together with a string loop against the force of a compressed spring. Burning the string releases the gliders with no external force. The photogate timer measures the time it takes for each glider tab to move through its respective gate. A reset switch on a cable clears the timer between measurements without the instructor getting in the line of sight.
