Physics equipment????

Discussion in 'Science' started by noosh, Feb 10, 2009.

  1. I need to buy some physics equipment for the speed, motion, momentum etc section of the AQA scheme of work and not sure what to buy or what is good or what works. Any help, advice would be great....if you have some equipment thats brilliant please let me know.

    Cheers
     
  2. Far too late I expect, but every school should have an air track with gliders and light gates. Pasco is expensive but it does at least work!
