Description

This apparatus is designed to demonstrate the basic principle of statics like resolution of forces, equilibrium of forces and moments and law of levers. Any part required to attach for the experiment can be quickly attached to the rails around the edges. The imprinted line grid and grid-marked lever rods provide quick precise assembly. The lengths marked on the grid make it easy to define angles. A wide range of mountings, such as cables, rods, pulleys, torque discs, pivot bearings and the like, can be easily fixed in place and combined. The versatility of the statics experimental unit helps students to explore their creativity in developing their own experiments.

The experimental unit demonstrates fundamental principles of statics such as the equilibrium of forces and moments, resolution of forces, the law of levers, and more. The base element is an upright panel which can be set up in portrait orientation. Feet enable the panel to stand on a laboratory bench. All parts required for the experiment can be quickly attached to the rails around the edges. The imprinted line grid and grid-marked lever rods permit precise assembly.

The lengths marked on the grid make it easy to define angles. A wide range of mountings, such as cables, rods, pulleys, pivot bearings and the like, can be easily fixed in place and combined. Ball bearings integrated into the panel permit low-friction torque experiments. The versatility of the statics experimental unit helps students to explore their creativity in developing their own experiments.

As a special teaching aid, it is possible to write directly on the panel with erasable markers. Markings, sketches and comments can be added to supplement the experiments. The various elements of the experiment are clearly laid-out.

Three optional supplementary sets are available to extend the scope of experimentation of the statics unit, providing additional experiments relating to the inclined plane, friction, pulley blocks and gear wheels.

Comprehensive experimental manual is provided with the apparatus.
