The Photogate Bar Tape Kit contains a flexible plastic tape called “Bar Tape” and a guide that allows the tape to be used with a Vernier Photogate. The tape is 3 m long, and it has alternating opaque and transparent bars that have a spacing of 1.524 cm. The tape can be attached to objects and pulled through the photogate. This allows you to perform experiments much like what you would do with a “ticker tape timer”.

Experiments include

  • Studying the motion of a toy car
  • Studying the motion of other toys, e.g., air powered rockets
  • Studying the motion of a person as they hold the tape and walk away from the photogate
