Pascars Momentum 1 Pascars Momentum 2

Pascars Momentum 3

Description

The velocities of a Blue Tooth Pascars can be measured with the use of a Laptop computer and Capstone software. When the record icon is pressed on Capstone, the velocities of the Pascars is measured and graphed. Two Pascars are simultaneously pushed from either end of the track and collide somewhere in the middle. Further analysis of the graph can determine what happened before and after the collision. Weights can be added to the Pascars to further investigate the effect of mass during collisions.
