  • ID Code: D1-35
  • Purpose: Measures the required centripetal force for an object to move with uniform circular motion
  • Description: A one-kilogram mass is rotated at a constant angular velocity by a motor-driven pulley. The centripetal force is measured by passing the radial string holding the mass around a pulley in the central tube and connecting it up the vertical tube to the spring scale. The angular velocity can be varied by rotating a knob on the front of the motor. The centripetal force can be calculated by measuring the angular velocity with a manual timer.
