Mechanics System 2 – code: 4861.29

Mechanics System 2 - cod:4861.29

An advanced low friction dynamics system to study elastic and inelastic collisions between carts. The Mechanics System 2 allows us to verify many kinematics and dynamics principles by using a low friction system. The basic theory involves topics such as Newton’s Laws of Motion, Conservation of Energy and Momentum, Friction and many others.
