The virtual airtrack gives students a personal experience of this elaborate piece of kit which enables them to do a variety of experiments which involves measuring velocity and acceleration and going on to verify Newton’s second law.  There are multiple time gates as well as paired gates that can be positioned anywhere on the track.  The track can be raised at one end.  For Newton’s second law a weight attached to a cord pulls the glider along the track.
