Atwood Machine Kit

This kit includes:

  • Atwood Machine
  • Right angle clamp
  • String spool
  • 3.5cm long spring (with a spring constant of 21N/m)
  • Support Rod
  • Laboratory manual and student worksheet

The classic Atwood Machine is used to help students understand and apply Newton's Laws. The included laboratory manual and student worksheet describes experiments useful in allowing students to conceptualize how pulleys operate. The manual includes resources for instructors to help with lesson planning and to help student carry out the experiments. The activities cover approximately 2-3 hours of classroom or laboratory time, and cover Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards Concepts.

Please note that this kit does not include all required components for the experiments outlined in the laboratory manual.

Required/Recommended Components (*not included)

  • Spring Scale 2.5N (or force probe)
  • Visual Scientifics Base
  • Visual Scientifics Backboard
  • (2) Small pads to protect the base as masses fall
  • Visual Scientifics Post
  • (2) Hooked mass sets (100g)(9-10g weights and 1-10g hooks)
