A must have addition to any physics laboratory. The new TimingPro Bluetooth Timing Ball uses a simple accelerometer to accurately measure time of flight. The most obvious use for the timing ball is to calculate g which can be done very easily and accurately by dropping the ball over a known distance. Timing Ball can also be used to investigate trajectories and to demonstrate that perpendicular vectors are independent.
The Timing Ball connects to TimingPro Timing Ball software on PCs, tablets and iphones / pads and enables users to display displacement, velocity, acceleration, force, energy and momentum. TimingPro Timing ball software (supplied for PC and available for free from the Play Store or iTunes) has user selectable ‘Basic’ and ‘Advanced’ modes along with templates for popular experiments so that only the functionality that is required for the experiment is shown.
A handy ruler pointer adapter slides over any standard 1m ruler and lets users perform g by freefall by accurately showing the point of release (ruler and pointer PY5052 must be purchased separately).
