experiments
  • 1 - Spring dynamometers, acceleration due to gravity, weight

    experiment "Spring dynamometers, acceleration due to gravity, weight"

    The use of a force gauge is learned when determining the weight force. The location factor is introduced or repeated. Finally, when comparing the measured values with theoretical values, the accuracy of the force gauge is discussed.


  • 2 - Addition of forces

    experiment "Addition of forces"

    A tensioned rope is pulled with a force gauge. Thus, three forces attack at one point, which can be added very precisely with the force parallelogram. The structure is very easy to adjust, so that many different configurations can be investigated.


  • 3 - Hooke’s law

    experiment "Hooke’s law"

    In this experiment, the elongation of a spring as a function of the force exerted on the spring is investigated.


  • 4 - Centre of gravity and equilibrium

    experiment "Centre of gravity and equilibrium"

    The center of gravity, or more precisely a heavy axis, of an arbitrarily shaped disc is determined experimentally. Subsequently, the static equilibrium of the disk is examined.


  • 5 - Laws of levers – 1st class levers

    experiment "Laws of levers – 1st class levers"

    On the two-sided lever, the leverage law is clarified.


  • 6 - Laws of levers – 2nd & 3rd class levers

    experiment "Laws of levers – 2nd & 3rd class levers"

    On the one-sided lever, the leverage law is clarified.


  • 7 - Static and dynamic friction

    experiment "Static and dynamic friction"

    Sliding and static friction are investigated as a function of the normal force, the coefficient of friction and the contact surface. The measurement data are statistically evaluated in a student-friendly manner.


  • 8 - Inclined planes

    experiment "Inclined planes"

    With a measuring carriage on an inclined plane, the slope driving force is determined for different angles of inclination and different wagon masses.


  • 9 - Elastic deformation – leaf springs

    experiment "Elastic deformation – leaf springs"

    In the elastic deformation of a leaf spring, it is investigated whether there is a linear relationship between the deflection of the leaf spring and the attacking force.


  • 10 - Plastic deformation – sand

    experiment "Plastic deformation – sand"

    In the plastic deformation of sand, it is investigated whether the crater diameter generated when a steel ball falls into sand depends linearly on the fall height.


  • 11 - Golden rule of mechanics – Fixed pulley

    experiment "Golden rule of mechanics – Fixed pulley"

    The Golden Rule of Mechanics is developed at the stations fixed roll, loose roll and pulley.


  • 12 - Golden rule of mechanics – Loose pulley

    experiment "Golden rule of mechanics – Loose pulley"

    The Golden Rule of Mechanics is developed at the stations fixed roll, loose roll and pulley.


  • 13 - Golden rule of mechanics – Block and tackle

    experiment "Golden rule of mechanics – Block and tackle "

    The Golden Rule of Mechanics is developed at the stations fixed roll, loose roll and pulley.


  • 14 - Measurement of efficiency on an inclined plane

    experiment "Measurement of efficiency on an inclined plane"

    On an inclined plane, the efficiency of a wagon is compared with that of a friction block.
