Constant Velocity Car

1 - 7 $14.02
8+ $11.88


For the price, you can afford to buy every lab group its own car. On a flat surface, the car travels at a constant velocity in a straight line long enough to conduct most standard time-and-distance experiments. Great resource for teaching constant velocity and kinematics.

Car body measures 4 x 7 x 3". Some general classroom items are needed but not supplied. Also requires 2 C or 2 AA batteries (not included). Changing the car's battery configuration changes its speed:

  • High speed: 2 C or 2 AA batteries
  • Low speed: 1 C or 1 AA battery (in combination with the included battery jumper)

For a corresponding classroom activity that provides analysis and discussion questions, see Carolina Essentials™: A Model for Constant Velocity on the Resources tab.
