Pneumatic launching for excellent repeatability.
- Investigate Important Concepts in Two-Dimensional Kinematics
- Measure the launch speed of the Projectile Launcher
- Predict the ball landing point from the initial speed of a horizontally launched ball
- Predict the ball landing point from the initial launch speed and angle
- Attempt to hit a target
Use the Vernier Projectile Launcher to investigate important concepts in two-dimensional kinematics. Launch steel balls at angles between 0 and 70 degrees and over distances up to 2.5 m.
The solid, heavy base is provides an easy-to-use and reliable setup. A unique pneumatic launching system provides excellent repeatability and allows you to set the launch speed.
Built-in photogates and angle markings provide easy and accurate measurement of the ball’s launch velocity, allowing for precise quantitative analysis of projectile motion. Simply plug the device into a compatible data-collection interface.
