Vernier Rotary Motion Sensor


SchoolMart Part #: V-RMS-BTD Brand:


While supplies last!
Our Rotary Motion Sensor lets you monitor angular motion precisely and easily, and it is direction sensitive. You can use it to collect angular displacement, angular velocity, and angular acceleration data. Typical experiments include measuring moments of inertia, torque, pendula, and Atwood’s machine experiments. Even though we call it a Rotary Motion Sensor, it can also be used to measure linear position to a fraction of a millimeter.
The Rotary Motion Sensor requires LabQuest App version 1.1 when used with LabQuest. After this update, the sensor will Auto ID when used by a LabQuest in stand-alone mode. Logger Pro 3.6 does not support any Rotary Motion sensor connected to a LabQuest.
For LabQuest Mini, LabQuest, and LabPro
