Inelastic Collisions

This experiment uses the computer/multimedia system to measure the motion ofa cart during a collision with a force sensor. The force sensor has a clay cone at the impact point to absorb the energy of the collision. A rotary motion sensor measures the linear position, velocity and acceleration of the cart during collision.
