We have designed a mechanical experiment to measure the total transverse force on moving vortices in a type II superconductor. The transverse force is measured by monitoring the motion of the superconductor while the vortices are driven into motion by a moving magnet. The advantage of this direct force measurement is that it is free from complications due to vortex interactions.
