The Vernier Go Direct Sensor Cart features built-in, wireless sensors for one-dimensional dynamics and kinematics experiments. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® wireless technology to your platform.

With Vernier's Go Direct Sensor Cart students can explore force, position, velocity and acceleration directly on their Bluetooth-enabled device—no wires or additional equipment required. Each cart features built-in sensors to simplify experiment setup and allow investigations to be conducted on or off the track.

The Vernier Go Direct Sensor Cart can be used for hands-on kinematics and dynamics demonstrations but can also be used as an individual sensor. Hang a mass and spring from the force sensor to study simple harmonic motion or attach the cart to a turntable to study centripetal acceleration.

Each full-featured dynamics cart includes:
• Encoder wheel to report position
• 3-axis accelerometer to measure independent acceleration
• ±50 N force sensor to measure push and pulls
• Mass trays for changing total mass
• Plunger for collision and impulse studies
• Low friction wheels for uniform motion
• Exchangeable magnetic and hook-and-pile inserts for elastic and inelastic collisions

Use the Vernier Go Direct Sensor Cart in a variety of experiments:
• Collect position, velocity and acceleration data as a cart rolls freely up and down an incline.
• Observe collisions between two carts and test for the conservation of momentum or measure energy changes during different types of collisions.
• Investigate the relationship between force, mass and acceleration.
• Examine the energies involved in simple harmonic motion.
• Measure a cart’s momentum change and compare it to the impulse it receives.

      This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
      ACSSU229 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Motion - The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics
      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
      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
      ACSPH099 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Gravity and motion - Projectile motion can be analysed quantitatively by treating the horizontal and vertical components of the motion independently
