Its gate features an input port, so multi- ple gates can be con- nected in a daisy-chain configuration with up to four gates going to a single interface channel. The Vernier Photogate also sup- ports auto-ID with compatible software. Use the unit to study free fall, air track collisions, pendulum periods, the speed of a rolling object, and much more.

Using this laser, you can measure the speed of mation with lenses and light intensity vs. distance. You can larger objects such as a rocket, model car, or even a real automobile. even use the kit to build a basic telescope. The Optics WLS-1751-62 Expansion Kit includes three lens holders with bases (100mm, 200mm, -150mm); screen, holder, and base; combi- nation luminous and point light source; light sensor holder; aperture screen; and power supply. WLS-1807-76 Motion Detector Study the motion of a person walking, a ball in free fall, a cart on a ramp, and much more. Using ultrasound to meas- ure distance, the motion detector emits pulses, which are reflected from a target, and then detected by the device. The time it takes for the reflected pulses to return is then used to calculate position, velocity, and acceleration. The detector can measure objects within a range of 15 cm to 6 m. The short minimum target distance allows objects to be closer to the detector and reduces stray reflections. A spe- cial track mode also tailors the sensitivity for dynamics carts on tracks for lower noise and higher quality data. The device attaches easily to the Vernier Dynamics track and has a piv- oting head and rubber feet for ease of use when used with- out the track.
