Air Track

Image coming
Track with square profile and 2 gliders for investigating frictionless linear motion. Mounted on a robust U-shaped base resting on three feet that can be adjusted to ensure horizontal alignment. The air is blown in from the front and escapes through small air outlets arranged in 2 rows along the track. This allows for practically frictionless movement of the gliders on the triangular track with no tilting. With millimetre tape measure.
