Paper Abstract

It is presented an educational kit to show physical principles: momentum, free fall and measure of gravitational constant for an object in movement. These principles are reproduced using mechanical parts, optical sensors and laser to send a signal into a computer. Data results are acquired and analyzed to demonstrate that the results are concordant with the theory. The results are into a 10% of error far of the known values for gravitational constant on Earth. This educational and demonstrative kit can be use in elementary and undergraduate level; it has as proposes to be a base to show complex experiments and advanced theory.
