Centrifugal Track (Loop)
For determination of minimum velocity at the upper point of the circular loop and to study the total energy along the track from the start point to the end point using photogates & Digital Timer. By using balls of different masses, the transformation potential energy into kinetic energy and vice versa, and the independence of velocity of descent on mass of the ball can be demonstrated. Consists of aluminium track with circular loop of diameter about 20cm, mounted on a base with leveling screws and air-level. The complete track is electrostatically black painted with millimeter ruler from the top to the lowest point of the loop and has continuously adjustable angle of inclination which can be read directly from the goniometric scale 0-90° graduated in degree using plumb line. Releasing attachment is provided for holding and releasing the ball at the upper point. A box at the end of the track catches the steel ball. Includes 2 pairs of spheres of different material and different diameters (one pair rubberized stainless steel, one pair rubber).
