Investigate how large the load (supporting force) on two supporting pillars (supports) is, which, e.g., support a bridge on which there are vehicles.



  • Optimised for demonstration experiments: Transformation from horizontal into vertical direction
  • Very good visibility: Big devices on uniform background
  • Strong Magnets (at least 10 N) allow a safe mounting and therefore a very easy handling
  • Demonstrative measurement of forces with large circular dynamometers with a fixing magnet and ball-bearing pulley with two cord grooves for two measuring ranges
  • Magneto-adhesive measuring scale facilitate the measurements
  • Colored arrows enhancing observations and explanations
