• Use the acceleration car accelerometer (1G10.23) to establish that the accelerometer shows acceleration.
  • The car can also be accelerated by hand for a more dramatic result.

        (put a tarp on the floor to catch the mass)

  • Use the centripetal accelerometer to show acceleration toward the center in a rotating system.

        (clamp rotator to table)

  • RPM can be varied with speed control knob.  Do not exceed 200 RPM.
