VERNIER GO DIRECT FORCE AND ACCELERATION SENSOR
Vernier's Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensor couples a 3-axis accelerometer with a stable and accurate force sensor that measures forces as small as ±0.1N and up to ±50N. Measure pushes and pulls in the classroom or outdoors. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.

The Vernier Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensor includes a force sensor, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope. Take it on a roller coaster, swing or slippery dip. Suspend several Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensors from the ceiling to perform a 3-D vector force experiment, or attach a string to the hook and whirl it in a horizontal or vertical circle. In wireless mode your imagination is the only limiting factor!

Vernier's Go Direct Force and Acceleration sensor can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Investigate Newton’s Third Law by connecting the hooks of two force sensors with a rubber band.
• Use the force sensor to pull an object across a surface to measure frictional forces.
• Attach the force sensor to the Centripetal Force Apparatus to measure centripetal force and acceleration simultaneously.
• Place sensors on Dynamics Carts to investigate forces and accelerations in collisions.

Rechargeable Battery — Ready When You Are
The Vernier Go Direct™ robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app Should the battery run low simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting — no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless — The Flexibility to Choose
Vernier's Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook or computer using Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app. No additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Vernier Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.

GAPRO Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro includes all the features of the free Vernier Graphical Analysis app, plus enhanced functions for more advanced analysis. Its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities inspire students to explore crucial scientific concepts and analyze data in new complex and insightful ways.
GAPRO is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.

Warranty
  • Warranty: 5 year limited warranty (1 year on battery) This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSSU190 - Physical Sciences - Energy Conservation - Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
    ACSSU229 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Motion - The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics
    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
    ACSSU033 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape
    ACSSU076 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Moving - Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance
    ACSSU117 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Machines - Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object
