Looking for an extra-long track for demonstrations or complex collisions? Vernier’s new 2.2 m Track is compatible with all accessories for the Vernier Dynamics System, including the Optics Expansion Kit, and Color Mixer Kit.
The Centripetal Force Apparatus allows you to investigate the relationship between centripetal force, angular velocity, mass, and radius. Use in conjunction with a force sensor, photogate, or the Wireless Dynamic Sensor System.
Do you do experiments with solar panels or other high-current devices? The new Vernier High Current Sensor has a range of ±10 A. Current is measured with a Hall effect sensor, which uses the magnetic field created by the current.
The Vernier Anemometer is an impellertype anemometer that measures wind speed in the range of 0.5 to 30 m/s (1 to 67 mph). The Anemometer fits in your palm for wind study measurements in the field. A standard camera mount on the back and an accessory rod allows you to position it in wind tunnels or in front of fans for wind turbine experiments.
To celebrate the introduction of our first mobile video analysis app, we asked you to take it for a spin and share with us your favorite insights. As usual, we were impressed with your ability to find fascinating science in everyday life! From the motion of a supermarket checkout conveyor belt to the flow of a creek, Video Physics can come in handy when you’re on the move. View the winning entries from ten fantastic physics teachers, download the video and Logger Pro files, and get Video Physics from the iTunes App Store.
At this year’s summer meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers, we were happy to team up with AAPT to present “The Physics of Vaudeville” demo show. Watch it here, and enjoy the excitement and entertainment of physics!
We were intrigued by an article in the November 2009 issue of The Physics Teacher entitled “Inexpensive Strobe-Like Photographs” by Emil L. Medeiros, O dilon A.P. Tavares and Sergio B. Durate. The article describes a great way to create strobe-like photographs with simple video cameras, or with still digital cameras that have a movie mode. This prompted us to share three ideas with you.
