EF-3.2 Kinematics Simple Mechanisms

 

EF-3.2 Kinematics Simple Mechanisms

The EF-3.2 Simple Mechanisms experiment kit enables students to visualise and understand the different types of mechanical systems and the conversion of linear motion to rotary motion and vice versa.

Description

The EF-3.2 Simple Mechanisms experiment kit enables students to visualise and understand the different types of mechanical systems and the conversion of linear motion to rotary motion and vice versa.

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.
