Plunger Cart



The original high quality, low friction dynamics carts made from durable machined aluminum. This version has spring loaded plunger for launching


These are the standard carts in thousands of physics labs around the world. With an aluminum body, plastic end caps, and two 250 g masses, they make dynamics experiments quick to set up and very quantitative. The Classic Carts are compatible with all PASCO Dynamics tracks and accessories.


Special Features

  • Ball bearing, knife-edge wheels mean student data more closely matches theory.
  • Wheels retract into the body, so they are protected from drops or "skateboarding."
  • The Extruded Aluminum Body gives the cart a total mass of 500 g
  • High-impact ABS Plastic End Pieces and rounded corners won't be damaged if the cart hits the floor.
  • Magnets give potential for elastic collisions withvelcro tabs for inelastic collisions
  • Two Mounting Holes for accessories
  • Add mass bars to double the mass of the cart.
  • Three position plunger provides reproducible impulses and explosions (Plunger Cart only)
