Supplementary set - inclined plane and friction (TM110.01)

Supplementary set - inclined plane and friction (TM110.01)

measurement and demonstration of spring deflection, inclined plane and mechanical friction



  • Supplementary set TM 110.01extends the scope of experiments which can be performed with TM 110 with the issues: elastic deflection of a helical spring, forces on the inclined plane and friction.
  • The inclined plane is provided by an aluminium rail.
  • For friction experiments, a friction body is used which has side faces prepared for different friction conditions.
  • All parts are clearly laid out and well protected on a storage system.
  • The storage systems are stackable, providing for space-saving storage.
