This is a set of three objects for an introductory physics laboratory: an airtrack glider, a fin-holder and a fin for use with photogates to measure speed of the glider cart. The cart contains holes on the ends for elastic and inelastic collision attachments. The fin snaps into the holder and may be glued in place for additional durability. The fin holder and fin fit traditional aluminum air carts.

Materials and methods

Print the fin holder with supports due to center pin.
