Two dimensional motion of a horizontal projectile.
Challenge students to predict the range of a projectile launched from the ramp! Accurate measurements make it possible! Launch point can be adjusted to any height on the stand, above the table or floor. Mount a photogate to the lower end, and measure the launch velocity. Use that velocity to predict the range.
Requires Workshop Stand (P4-1901) and the Timer and Photogates (P4-1450).
