TM 110.01 Supplementary set - inclined plane and friction



  • Measurement and demonstration of spring deflection, inclined plane and mechanical friction


Technical Description

Supplementary set TM 110.01 extends the scope of experiments which can be performed with TM 110: elastic deflection of a helical spring and forces on the inclined plane.

The inclined plane is provided by an aluminium rail. For friction experiments, a friction body is used which has side faces prepared for different friction conditions.

All parts are clearly laid out and well protected on a storage system. The storage systems are stackable, providing for space-saving storage.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- elastic deflection of a helical spring (Hooke’s Law)
- dynamic friction as a function of the normal force, contact area and surface properties of the friction body
- determination of the friction coefficient
- rolling friction
- forces on the inclined plane
