EF-2.1 – Dynamics – Friction

 

EF-2.1 – Dynamics – Friction

The EF-2.1- Friction experiments kit enables students to understand that friction can be affected by a number of variables.

Description

The Engineering Fundamentals range enables students to gain an understanding of the principles of engineering by the process of learning via experimentation.

The EF-2.1- Friction experiments kit enables students to understand that friction can be affected by a number of variables including material surface, mass of the object trying to slide, angle of sliding and what effect external forces acting on the object will have.

The kit is designed to help students understand that friction can be divided into 2 categories, static friction and kinetic (dynamic) friction. The extent at which friction is reduced by using wheels and rollers, the angle at which the object slides and the angle of friction with the movement of an object along a plane is dependent on what external forces are applied and from which direction.

Engineering fundamentals system

The modular tray-based system is supplied in conjunction with a multifunctional work panel 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, allowing the student to understand the theory of the subject by the application of practical experimentation.
