Air Table Experiment

Air Table Experiment

By measuring the distance of dots produced
by spark timer, motion and collision
experiments can be performed accurately in
a 2D environment with extremely low friction.
With Air Table the following experiments can be done:


  • Motion with constant velocity in two dimension

  • Motion with constant acceleration in two demiension

  • Motion on an inclined plane Collisions; conservation of linear momentum

  • Projectile motion

  • Rotational motion

  • Calculation of gravitational acceleration

  • Atwood Machine - Application of Newton’s 2nd law

  • Simple harmonic motion demonstration
