This is part of MM 500 Mechanical Engineering Test Series which provides various experiments kits and MM 500-001 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.
Relationship of centrifugal force with rotating speed, mass and its distance from axis of rotation.
MAIN COMPONENTS AND PARTS
- Centrifugal force frame
- Stop watch
- Plastics box
for data calculation and analysis by manual data entry from analog measuring instruments
