EF-1.1 Statics Forces

 

EF-1.1 Statics Forces

The EF-1.1 – Forces experiment kit enables students to understand the centre of gravity of different shapes and analysis of forces in equilibrium for concurrent and non-concurrent force.

Description

The EF-1.1 – Forces experiment kit enables students to understand the centre of gravity of different shapes and analysis of forces in equilibrium for concurrent and non-concurrent force.

The Engineering Fundamentals range is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of engineering by the process of learning via hands-on experimentation.

The modular hands-on tray based system is supplied in conjunction with a multifunctional Base Unit enabling the student to conduct their own experiments in subjects such as Statics, Dynamics, Mechanisms and Kinematics.

Each kit is supplied with a highly visual user friendly operational guide, enabling the student to understand the theory of the subject by the application of practical experimentation.
