MM 500-162 CENTRIFUGAL FORCE SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This is part of MM 500 Mechanical Engineering Test Series which provides various experiments kits and MM 500-100 Basic Panel (separately supplied) to study or demonstrate specific engineering principles. The set is supplied in plastics box.

A rotating frame consists of a shaft, sliding masses and calibrated spring. When rotated, the mass forces the spring to compress. Centrifugal force is measured by spring compression and rotation speed is measured by mental count and stop watch.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS

Relationship of centrifugal force with rotating speed, mass and its distance from axis of rotation.

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

Centrifugal force framemassesstop watch and plastics box
