TEL-210

Here’s a great value in a student air track. Study one-dimensional motion, collisions and the conservation of momentum at low friction. Our sturdy triangular aluminum track is lightweight yet durable. 1.5 meters in length, it has a smooth surface and high linearity due to precision machining. One row of 0.95 mm diameter holes on each side. Re-engineered spring bumpers have significantly lower friction loss than previous design. Updated gliders have a lower center of mass. Accessories are less massive to improve accuracy. Requires TEL-218 Air Source (not included).
