Overview

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 Long Range Launcher, a Short Range Launcher and a Mini (tabletop) Launcher are available.

 

Typical Applications

  • Projectile Motion
  • Projectile Motion using Photogates
  • Projectile Range versus Angle
  • Projectile Path
  • Conservation of Energy
  • Conservation of Momentum in Two Dimensions
  • Varying Angle to Maximize Height on a Wall
  • Demo: Do 30° and 60° Give the Same Range?
  • Demo: Simultaneously Shoot Two Balls Horizontally at Different Speeds
  • Demo: Shoot Through the Hoops

Special Features

  • Multiple Ranges: PASCO offers launchers for all classroom arrangements.
  • Flexible Launch Positions: Stable stands offer horizontal and variable angle launching positions.
  • Fixed Firing Height at Any Launch Angle: Firing height of ball is same for any launch angle.
  • Unique Piston Design: Minimizes projectile spin to ensure repeatability of impact position.
  • Spring Mechanism: Fully enclosed for safety.
