Friction Pad


After working hard to make our dynamics carts very low friction, we’ve now added some friction back, so that you and your students can study friction in a controlled way.


Add a Cart Friction Pad to your Vernier Dynamics System, and watch the carts move under very consistent friction force. Setting the friction amount is as simple as turning a knob. This device slides onto the end of one of our green metal dynamics carts, but is incompatible with our plastic carts.
If you are using our plastic dynamics carts, choose the Friction Pad DTS.




The Friction Pad is for use with the original Vernier Dynamics System (2005-2015). It is not compatible with the Dynamics Cart and Track System (2016-present).
