The Projectile Launcher illustrates the idea that motion in different dimensions is absolutely independent. A good launcher not only illustrates this non-intuitive idea, but it can be used to describe the exact motion of the projectile as well. PASCO has precision-engineered Projectile Launchers that are accurate, durable and give repeatable results. In addition to the Short Range Launcher, a Long Range Launcher and a Mini (tabletop) Launcher are available.
