Mechanics Upgrade 1 - code: 4941.14

The Mechanics Upgrade 1 will give you a complete Dynamics System, with low friction carts and full accessories. It is designed to perform experiments such as energy and/or momentum conservation, elastic and inelastic collisions, rolling friction, coupled harmonic oscillators, etc. If you add further accessories to the Altay Carts, you can perform many more experiments as well as interesting demonstrations.
Equipment needed
