Slotted Weight

The slots allow them to be placed on weight hangers, which are lightweight platforms attached to a thin rod with a hook at the top. Various masses are added to the hanger to create the desired amount of total mass. then the combination is hung by the hooked end from a string or other support point. The slotted masses and weight hanger combination allows a student to quickly create any desired amount of mass, to use in experiments involving force, acceleration, and mass. There are also many other experiments in other fields where a variable hanging mass comes in handy.

All masses and the hanger may be ordered separately.
Standard masses are 1000, 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 2, and 1 gram.

This set contains a total of 12 weights – nine 20-gram, one 10-gram, and two 5-gram – and a 50-gram weight hanger approximately 3-1/2" high.
