Setup Instructions

Student Stations

  1. Verify that all materials are present before proceeding to set up lab.
  2. Insure all springs are not deformed.
  3. Put the Parallel Spring bracket onto the tall stand.
    1. It may take some force to push it down, contact a tech if you can't get it.
    2. DO NOT HANG ANY SPRINGS, leave them all in the box.
  4. Put the photogate on the 90 degree bracket on the short stand as shown
  5. The Parallel Spring bracket should also have some blue masking tape over the left side, if not then put it there, cut it nicely.
    1. Leave the bracket near center of table so it isn't accidently knocked off.
