Timing Plate for TSA/ALBA, B1-1000.16, £24.50
The Timing Plate connects directly to a DIN socket at the back of TSA or ALBA.
The Timing Plate is intended to replace the trap door in the 'g' by free fall experiment. When the ball bearing hits the Timing Plate a pulse is produced which is detected by TSA or ALBA. The size of the Timing Plate is 20x20 cm and consequently it is difficult to miss it with a ball bearing.
The Timing Plate can be used very effectively with the P.E.T. device to study projectile motion. It enables pupils to study launch velocities, time of flight, theoretical range, actual range , energy conversions...
Setup for the Timing Plate being used with TSA and the Gap Timer mode to measure 'g' in the Falling Ball Experiment.
