Pushing and Pulling a Dynamics Cart

1. Connect the datalogger interface to a PC with the software installed.

2. Connect the motion sensor and force sensor to the interface.

3. Place the air track on a horizontal surface and fix the motion sensor to one end of the track.

4. Place the force sensor on top of the dynamics cart.

5. Place the cart on the air track with the hook of the force sensor pointing away from the motion sensor.

- Figure 1 -


Before recording the data, ensure that the force sensor is reset to zero.

7. Start the data-logging software and start recording the data.

8. Hold the hook of the force sensor and pull and push the force sensor to make the cart move back and forth. Please note the minimum distance for the motion sensor and make sure the cart does not come too close to the motion sensor.

9. Push and pull the cart back and forth four or five times, then stop recording the data.
