Physics Fundamentals Learning Activities
The unique stop system of this device allows students to load masses on the lever arm without it falling.
- Kit Includes Four Gears, Two Levers, Mounting Hardware, and Teacher and Student Guides
- Activity Requires the Fun Stand, Hooked Masses, and Spring Scales, Available Separately
- Students Investigate Advantage Behind Different Gear Ratios
Allow students to investigate the advantage behind different gear ratios. Experimenting with different setups, students discover the mechanical advantage of gears and three types of levers.
You can also challenge students to devise a way to lift a mass using the least amount of force.
