 TEL-RP6010SYS

Consists of the Kater Pendulum and the TEL-611-0103 Smart Timer. Supply two lab stands and you will have everything you need to measure g.

Kater Pendulum has been designed to allow a measurement of g to within a few parts per thousand in about 10 minutes. In addition, a very precise measurement of g (to within a few parts in ten thousand) can be performed in a single lab period.

The axes of rotation are by means of a “knife edge” which is inserted through one or the other of two holes; whose placement in the pendulum were carefully chosen. Although period measurements may be made with a stopwatch, a photogate is preferred to: (i) eliminate large reaction time errors, and (ii) insure that data is collected in an amplitude regime that is essentially isochronous.
