SKU: FP-BTA Categories: ,

$448.00

Designed for much higher forces than the Dual-Range Force Sensor, the Force Plate can measure the forces developed during stepping, jumping, and other human-scale actions. For example, you can perform the following kinds of experiments:

  • Observe the change in normal force during an elevator ride.
  • Measure the impulse delivered by the floor during a jump.
  • Measure the reaction force as a student leans against a wall.

Force range: –850 to +3500 N or –200 to +850 N, where positive value is a compression force
Maximum non-damaging force: 4500 N (1000 lb) compression or 900 N (200 lb) pull evenly distributed
Typical Resolution: 1.2 N or 0.3 N
Dimensions: 28 cm by 32 cm by 5 cm
