This is a simple low cost wooden ramp and car designed for introducing speed and the effect of friction.
The 1 m high adjustable ramp has four slope positions and four slope surfaces with different levels of friction. The car has space for weights to be added.
- 1m long wooden ramp, full width 18.5 cm
- A stand with four slope positions (total stand height 46 cm)
- 4 different surfaces to show the effect of friction (1 m long and 14 cm wide)
- A wooden car with space for weights (approx. 17.5 cm long x 11.5 cm wide)
- Assembly instructions
A Switch kit (3841) for the ramp is available to purchase separately. This has a magnet that attaches to the underside of the car and two reed switches that fit into holes in the ramp. The switches are used connected to an EasySense data logger to record time, speed or acceleration of the car as it travels down the ramp.
For more advanced work on Motion and Forces, please see the Dynamics System which offers greater flexibility and precision using Light Gates for timing.
