Weight hangers are used in physics experiments
and education related to masses, force, pendulum, friction and many more. You
can modify the weight or mass of a weight hanger by adding slotted weights to it
or removing slotted weights from it.
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.
Slotted masses and the weight hanger may be
ordered separately or as a set. If you are buying weight hangers and
slotted masses separately you must make sure that they match each other.
Inserting and stacking weight
Weight hangers may have two different designs.
One is inserting design and the other is stacking design. Materials from these
two designs are not interchangeable.
Inserting style weight hangers are
designed so that you can insert or remove a mass from any point along
the stem. In this design the diameter of the stem is the same from the
top to the bottom. This is called inserting style weight hanger. Almost
all aluminum weight hangers have inserting design.
Stacking style weight hangers are designed
so that you can insert or remove a mass only from the top. The stem
diameter is narrow on the top to allow inserting masses that have a
narrow slot. Although the slot is narrow, the masses for stacking weight
hangers have a large hole in the center allowing the mass to move down
on the stem. Most brass weight hangers are stacking style weight
hangers. In other words the stem is wide and the hook and upper part of
the stem are narrow.
All masses and the hanger may be
Aluminum Weight Hangers
|Aluminum weight hangers require
special slotted weights with 5 mm open slots. Aluminum weight hangers weigh 50
grams and the stem length
is 16 cm. The diameter of the stem rod is 4.85 mm. Aluminum weight hangers are
inserting type weight hangers and the weights can be entered from the

This brass weight hanger has a top
hook and a precise weight of 50g that makes this hanger ideal for use
with slotted weights. The stacking section of this brass weight hanger
is 10 cm (4"). The diameter of the column is 5.9mm in stacking
section and it is 2.9mm in hook section.
Stem Diameter: 5.9 mm
Hook Diameter: 2.9 mm
Stem Height: 100 mm
Overall height: 145 mm
This is the most compatible weight hanger for old
and new brass slotted weights with stacking design.
