Time-of-Flight Accessory - ME-6810

ME6810_MAIN.jpg

Overview

The Time-of-Flight Accessory is designed primarily for free fall or projectile experiments. When a projectile is launched or object dropped, a photogate starts the timing of one of PASCO's timing systems. When the object hits the plate of the Time-of-Flight Accessory and makes a noise, a signal is sent to the interface to stop the timer. The signal is identical to the signal sent by a blocked photogate.

When used with PASCO's Projectile Launchers (ME-6800, ME-6801), the Time-of-Flight Accessory demonstrates the relationship between time-of-flight, angle, distance, and initial velocity.
