Heat Absorption Apparatus
Heat Absorption Apparatus
16895

To study and demonstrate heat absorption and radiation. Consists of two metal concave plates one white and the other painted black with thermometer holders on the back, and in-between is a lamp, heat source. When the lamp is switched on and the temperature is measured of the metal plates, it can be studied which one absorbs heat quicker and more than the other. After the lamp is turned off, we can also study which losses heat quicker. Lamp operates on 12VDC. Base Size 7.75" x 7.75" x 0.5". Metal plates are 3.75" in dia. Total height of unit 5.5". One bulb included, thermometers not included.

Heat Transfer Kit
Heat Transfer Kit
15230

Students fill one container with water at room temperature and the other with boiling water. A thermometer is placed in each container and the water temperature in both cups read before heat transfer. The metal bar is then immersed in the cups, and students observe heat lost by boiling water and heat gained in the cooler water. Each kit includes: 2 insulated containers; 2 insulated lids with slots; 1 U-shaped aluminum transfer bar; 2 thermometers 20 degrees to 110 degrees. Additional materials required: low-temperature thermometer.

Inertia Demonstrator
Inertia Demonstrator
16963

This robustly constructed inertia demonstrator works reliably every time and is a great improvement on traditional versions of this classic experiment. A steel ball rests on a thin metal card on top of a pillar, and a spring-loaded catch is mounted next to the pillar. When the catch is released, a piston strikes the edge of the metal card sharply. The card flies out from under the ball, which remains in place on top of the pillar due to its large inertial mass. The card is tethered to the aluminum base for easy recovery after the experiment.

Melting Point Apparatus
Melting Point Apparatus
16896

A very simple, easy and economical way of measuring melting points. The apparatus consists of an aluminum block 2.5" (62mm) in diameter by 2" (50mm) high, with a slanted hole to accept a thermometer. The testing material is sprinkled on the top of the block and the block is heated with a heat source like a bunsen burner. As soon as the material starts to melt the reading on the thermometer is the melting point. This apparatus can be used to measure melting points upto 250 degrees C. Stand and thermometer not included.

Thames and Kosmos Air-Stream Machines Kit
17025

• Build hovercraft that glides across smooth floors water on a cushion of air
• Experiment with propellers and impellers  to learn about air pressure and air flow
• Learn about air pressure and air flow
• Full-color, 32-page experiment manual
• 59 building pieces.

Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. The models in this kit use a unique blower motor and a safe, soft-bladed fan to drive a series of models. The blower motor uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. The fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Using these components, you can build and investigate the hovercraft and other machines that rely on air and air pressure to function. Construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power. Make a fan-driven car that drives forward, propelled by a stream of air. Experiment to see how much weight your hovercraft can support.

• Build spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel and a hydraulic lift
• Study advanced topics like fluid dynamics, energy, hydraulics, and pneumatics
• Investigate how air & water rest and flow, what they can carry and how they move
• More than 212 parts are included in this kit
• Learn why a streamlined shape lets a car drive faster
• Learn how power plants convert a current of water into electrical current

Physics Pro is our biggest, most advanced physics kit. With this kit, you can continue your study of statics and dynamics from previous lessons and begin your study of more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics, and pneumatics. By adding advanced topics like fluid dynamics to your physics repertoire, you can now build some really spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel, pneumatic shocks, and a hydraulic lift. You will see how physics extends far beyond the classroom, giving us an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world to engineer marvelous things. The main focus of the kit is the behavior of the two most important fluids in our world — water and air — and objects immersed in them. You will investigate how air and water rest and flow, what they can carry and how they move. With experiments and models, you will find out what forces work on them and what kinds of energy they possess. You will learn how ships float and airplanes fly, why a streamlined shape lets a car drive faster and how power plants convert a current of water into electrical current. The 96-page, full-color experiment manual has two major sections. In the first part, you will enter the physics lab, where you will get to know the properties of air and water and become familiar with currents and energy. There is a series of 17 experiments in which you will start building smaller models. In the second part, you will move on to the workshop, where you will build 14 larger models of complex real-world devices. More than 212 parts are included in this kit, which are compatible with our other Physics kits.

The Spillnot
The Spillnot
16962

The design of the Spillnot uses the principles of Newtonian physics to keep the liquid in the container. The flexible handle and location of the suspension point above the center of the tray ensure that the forces on the liquid are always directed toward the supporting tray, even when the tray is in motion. Sideways forces usually responsible for spills are not transmitted to the tray by the flexible handle. Radial forces generated during swinging motion only force the liquid into the container more firmly. An inexpensive demonstration to intrigue students and challenge their analytical powers! Includes activity guide. 5" x 5" x 9". Weight: .25 lbs.
