This Class IIIa (<5 mW) Laser Pointer can be used with the Vernier Photogate to produce a gate that is wider than the normal 7.5 cm spacing, making it possible to measure the speed of an automobile or of a person running. The laser case is made of aircraft aluminum, and it uses two AAA batteries (included). The wavelength of the light is 650 nm.
Microphone for use with LabQuest, LabPro, CBL 2, and CBL can be used to display and study the waveforms of sounds from voices and musical instruments. It is also great for speed of sound experiments. The Microphone is automatically detected when connected; The Microphone is used in 6 experiments in 5 books and in 1 innovative use.
Vernier Photogate (For LabQuest, LabPro, and CBL 2)... The Vernier Photogate works both as a traditional photogate for objects passing between the gate arms, and as a laser gate for objects passing outside of the gate. The gate has an input port so multiple gates can be connected in a daisy-chain configuration with up to four gates going to a single interface channel. The Vernier Photogate also supports auto-ID with compatible software. Photogates can be used to study free fall, air track collisions, pendulum periods, the speed of a rolling object, and many other things. The Vernier Photogate includes an accessory rod for mounting to a common ring stand. The laser gate mode requires the addition of a common pen laser, which is directed into the laser port. The laser may be some distance from the gate, so that you can measure the speed of larger objects such as a rocket, model car, or even a real automobile.
Light Sensor (For LabQuest, LabPro, Go! Link, EasyLink, CBL 2, and CBL) approximates the human eye in spectral response and can be used over three different illumination ranges, which you select with a switch. Use it for inverse square law experiments or for studying polarizers, reflectivity, or solar energy.
The Motion Detector uses ultrasound to measure the position of carts, balls, people, and other objects. Measure objects as close as 15 cm and as far away as 6 meters; Sensitivity switch reduces noise and produces higher quality data for studying dynamics carts on tracks; Attaches easily to the Vernier Dynamics System; Pivoting head allows for flexibility in the experiment setup.
Calculator Based Ranger System 2... If you teach math, physical science or physics, you may want to consider the CBR 2. The CBR 2 collects distance, velocity and acceleration data while connected directly to a TI calculator. The connection to the calculator is through the calculator link port or, if you have a TI84 Plus or TI84 Plus Silver Edition, the CBR 2 can connect to the calculator's USB port. When the CBR 2 is connected to the USB port of the TI84 Plus, the EasyData application automatically starts and you are ready to collect data.
Dual-Range Force Sensor (For LabQuest, LabPro, Go! Link, EasyLink, CBL 2, and CBL) has two ranges: +/- 10N or +/- 50N. It can be easily mounted on a ring stand or dynamics cart (mounting bracket included), or used as a replacement for a hand-held spring scale. Use it to study friction, simple harmonic motion, impact in collisions, or centripetal force. This force sensor is used for experiments in our physics, physical science, and middle school science lab manuals. Easily mounted on a ring stand or dynamics cart, or used as a replacement for a hand-held spring scale; Two ranges: +/10 and +/50 newtons (push/pull); Purposes/Functions: Study friction, simple harmonic motion, impact in collisions, or centripetal force; This force sensor is used for experiments in Vernier's physics and physical science lab manuals; Course Usage: Physics & Physical Science.
Go! Motion Sensor is our next-generation motion detector that connects directly to a computer's USB port-eliminating the need for an additional data-collection interface. Students learn experientially as they graph the motion of a ball, a cart on a ramp, pendulum motion, or themselves. The new Go!Motion is easy to use, allowing students to focus on learning scientific concepts instead of setting up the lab. Go!Motion's head pivots to match the needs of your lab. Flip the head halfway for monitoring the motion of a cart on a track. Or flip the 180 degrees to record motion data from a tripod. Go!Motion features reduced noise and automatic temperature compensation to ensure motion readings are continuously accurate. The sensitivity switch lets you customize settings to your experiment. Measure motion data as close as 15 cm and as far away as 6 m! Go!Motion can be used with Windows and Macintosh computers through the USB port. It can also be used with the LabPro, CBL 2, or TI graphing calculators (additional cable required). Go!Motion excels in both the science and math classrooms! Go!Motion comes bundled with our Logger Lite data-collection software so you can see data graphed in real time, examine data point by point, annotate different experiment runs, and more! Want to synchronize motion data with video? You'll want Logger Pro.
