About the size of a bathroom scale, the Vernier force plate measures forces of stepping, jumping and other human-scale actions. You can observe the change in normal force during an elevator ride, or measure the impulse delivered by the floor when you jump. The Force Plate has two ranges, one for larger forces up to 3500 N, and a more sensitive 800 N range for pushing experiments. Use with LabQuest Mini or LabQuest sensor interfaces, sold separately.
Maximum non-damaging force: 4500 N (1000 lb) compression or 900 N (200 lb) pull evenly distributed.
