This versatile kit is part of a series that allows many experiments using different arrangements of their parts. Students, teachers or lecturers fit the parts of the kit to the Work Panel (ES1) (supplied separately) to study or show an engineering science topic.

This kit includes a set of different plastic shapes for experiments in centres of gravity of two-dimensional objects. It also includes pulleys, weights and a magnetic protractor for experiments in concurrent and non-concurrent coplanar forces and angles.

The selection of pulleys and weights allows you to create force triangles, polygons and linked polygons. The guidance notes show how to analyse and predict forces using Bow’s Notation and the parallelogram of forces.

TecQuipment supply a CD-ROM with the Work Panel (ES1). It includes all the worksheets, guidance notes and lecturer notes (with answers) needed for typical experiments with each kit. The selection of parts in the kits and the choice of fixing points on the work panel means that teachers or lecturers may extend the experiments to an even greater range.

  • Centres of gravity
  • Force triangles
  • Force polygons and Bow’s Notation
  • Linked polygons (non-concurrent forces)
case study
Structural Mechanics Lab Birzeit University - Palestine

For many years Birzeit University has trusted TecQuipment to be their no.1 provider of engineering laboratory products to aid the teaching of Mechanical, Civil and Environmental Engineering courses. Knowing from personal experience that the equipment is built to last, and that they can rely heavily on local support from TecQuipment agent in Palestine backed up by the dedicated TecQuipment Customer Services team, it was the logical choice to choose TecQuipment once again for their new lab equipment.
