MEI Teacher Guides for the DynaKar

This comprehensive resource provides guidance on how to use the Dynakar in the following investigations: finding the resistance force acting on the Dynakar, rolling a Dynkar uphill and Galileo’s experiment. It is accompanied by three worksheets for students to use:

1. Finding the Resistance Force Acting on the Dynakar Worksheet
2. Rolling the Dynakar Uphill Worksheet
3. Galileo’s Experiment Worksheet

More MEI maths teaching resources are available from the MEI website.

Investigation Motion with the DynaKar

This experiment is a fun way to investigate the relationship between speed, time, distance, and acceleration. The main piece of equipment used in this investigation, the Dynakar, has been designed specifically for this kind of investigation.

Equipment needed:
A Dynakar
Dynakar 2 Metre Track (The 1 metre track can be used though the results will be less visible)
Logbook Graphing Software

Effect of Air Resistance on Acceleration with the Dynakar
