G2-26: COUPLED AIR TRACK GLIDERS

Additional Info

  • ID Code: G2-26
  • Purpose: Demonstrate coupled oscillations and normal modes in a system of two identical coupled air track gliders.
  • Description: Two moveable air track gliders are connected by three springs to fixed gliders (at each end). Pushing one of the gliders causes motion which rapidly couples back and forth between the two gliders. The two normal modes can be excited by giving the two gliders the same displacements, either (1) in phase, or (2) out of phase, before releasing them from rest simultaneously.
