The rotating platform is characterised by a sturdy metal structure and a couple of conical bearings which allow it to rotate ensuring great resistance to stresses and low friction. Thanks to the didactic guide and the several accessories supplied with this collection, students will be able to carry out experiments on non inertial reference frames which otherwise would be impossible to perform. Our rotating platform is a particular and interactive instrument particularly suited to study angular momentum, moment of inertia and centrifugal force.
Platform diameter: 50 cm
