VERNIER DYNAMICS CART AND TRACK SYSTEM
The Dynamics Cart and Track System provides students with the tools they need to explore kinematics, dynamics, momentum and energy. This versatile system can also be easily adapted to study optics, colour and diffraction.
The Vernier Dynamics Cart and Track System is the core of every physics lab. This traditional cart and track system features an aluminum track, two low-friction, plastic carts, an ultra pulley and all of the necessary attachment accessories.
Vernier have redesigned their carts to provide added durability, versatility and instructional value.
• Four mass trays make it easy to vary the total cart mass.
• Super-elastic trigger button allows for new types of collisions.
• An anti-roll peg ensures that the cart rolls on the track but not off the table.
• Top tray allows for easy attachment of sensors and masses.
• Two cart colours (teal and grey) make it easier to discuss collisions.
To study Newton’s second law, acceleration on an inclined plane, momentum and much more simply add:
• MB-BTD Vernier Motion Detector
• DFS-BTA Vernier Dual-Range Force Sensor
• WDSS Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor System
• VPG-BTD Vernier Photogate and
• Vernier Accelerometers
Optimise your track with the addition of the
• OEK Vernier Optics Expansion Kit
• CM-OEK Vernier Colour Mixer Kit
• Vernier Optics System
• DAK Vernier Diffraction Apparatus
You can easily upgrade a Vernier Dynamics Cart and Track System to include a Motion Encoder with one of Vernier's upgrade kits. This optical-only system eliminates the need for a Motion Detector for cart-on-track experiments and provides excellent, repeatable and noise-resistant motion data.
• Combination 1.2m Track/Optics Bench
• Standard Cart with magnetic and velcro end caps
• Plunger Cart with magnetic and velcro end caps
• 4 hexagonal masses
• Mounting hardware for Dual-Range Force Sensor and accelerometers
• Adjustable End Stop
• 2 Adjustable Two-Foot Levelers
• Motion Detector Bracket
• Motion Detector Reflector Flag
• Rod Clamp
• 2 Photogate Brackets
• Ultra Pulley
• Pulley Bracket
DTS-LONG Vernier Dynamics Track System with Long Track substitutes a 2.2m track for the 1.2m track in the list above. All other components of the two systems are the same.
This product replaces VDS Vernier Dynamics System.

Vernier Dynamics Track System DTS Overview
This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
ACSPH066 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Collisions may be elastic and inelastic; kinetic energy is conserved in elastic collisions
ACSPH065 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Energy is conserved in isolated systems and is transferred from one object to another when a force is applied over a distance; this causes work to be done and changes to kinetic and/or potential energy of objects
ACSPH064 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Momentum is a property of moving objects; it is conserved in a closed system and may be transferred from one object to another when a force acts over a time interval
ACSPH063 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Newton’s Three Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the force or forces acting on an object, modelled as a point mass, and the motion of the object due to the application of the force or forces
ACSPH061 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Representations, including graphs and vectors, and/or equations of motion, can be used qualitatively and quantitatively to describe and predict linear motion
ACSPH060 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Uniformly accelerated motion is described in terms of relationships between measurable scalar and vector quantities, including displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration
ACSPH062 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Vertical motion is analysed by assuming the acceleration due to gravity is constant near Earth’s surface
ACSPH076 - Linear Motion and Waves - Waves - A wave model explains a wide range of lightrelated phenomena including reflection, refraction, total internal reflection, dispersion, diffraction and interference; a transverse wave model is required to explain polarisation
