Mini Projectile Launcher and BeeSpi Bundle
Item # 94-1971
This simple but precise launcher is available with a custom 3D printed adapter and BeeSpi to facilitate a deeper investigation of projectile motion in a compact bundle.
Most projectile motion experiments calculate initial velocity by shooting a projectile vertically and timing the flight. There is no replacement for this method as it brilliantly demonstrates how the component theory of vectors works, but it is prone to error. Measuring initial velocity opens the door for error analysis of the timing method and offers richer data collection for more advanced projectile motion inquiries.
OURS NOW INCLUDES - an exclusive, uniquely-engineered metal cup that holds the ball on the plunger for greater accuracy AND consistency.
A cable release gives a smooth triggering to prevent jerking. The unit can be fixed to a bench with a clamp (not included) or can stand on its own. Two 16mm steel balls included.
Low-cost method for every student to thoroughly investigate projectile motion
- Projectile range vs. angle
- Projectile path
- Conservation of energy
- Conservation of momentum in two dimensions
A real VALUE without sacrificing QUALITY!
Compare OUR projectile launcher to those that are more than 4x the cost
