Visual Scientifics Atwood Machine

Item # 753174

Resolve the common misconception that string tension is the culprit when resolving pulley problems or drawing free-body diagrams. Students who grasp Newton’s laws, tension, and using pulleys to change direction of force are ready to merge engineering with inquiry. Includes Atwood machine, right-angle clamp, string, spring, post, instructions; hooked masses and 2.5 N spring scale are needed but not supplied. Requires Visual Scientifics Base (item #753150) and Back Board (item #753152) for use.
