The Rotary Motion Sensor and Rotational Motion Accessory Kit can be used to study the motion of a physical pendulum; the rotational inertia of disks, rings, and point masses; and the conservation of angular momentum. Monitor angular motion precisely and easily. It is direction sensitive. You can use it to collect angular displacement, angular velocity, and angular acceleration data. Typical experiments include measuring moments of inertia, torque, pendula, and Atwood’s machine experiments. Even though we call it a Rotary Motion Sensor, it can also be used to measure linear position to a fraction of a millimeter.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including chromium, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, see www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
