laws of the behaviour of rotating masses
- Centrifugal force occurs in the motion of a rigid body on an orbit and is the inertia force, which acts with a direction away from the centre of rotation.
- The counter force associated with the inertial force is the centripetal force.
- Both forces are of equal magnitude and opposite in direction.
- Centrifugal forces occur in all rotating machinery such as turbines and must be controlled to prevent damage to machine elements.
- The TM 600unit can be used to study centrifugal forces under various conditions.
- The core of the experimental unit is a rotating arm on a vertical rotation axis.
- Different masses are attached to the arm.
- The orbital radius can be set via the position of the mass on the arm.
- There are three different masses available.
- The occurring centrifugal force is transferred from the arm to a bending beam.
- The force-proportional deformation is detected via an electronic measuring system and displayed digitally.
- The speed, also displayed digitally, of the controlled drive motor can be continuously adjusted.
- A transparent protective cover above the rotating arm ensures safety: operation is only possible when the protective cover is properly attached.
