We offer two different projectile launchers. There is our full sized Projectile Launcher which offers selectable ranges of 1.2, 3, or 5 m and launch angles from 0º to 90º. Also available is our Mini Launcher which is great for table top experiments with ranges of 0.5, 1, and 2 m and the ability to fire it downward with launch angles from -45º to 90º.
The Projectile Launcher uses plastic balls while the Mini Launcher uses steel balls. Both include a loading rod, angle indicator, plumb bobs and a 2D collision accessory for studying conservation of momentum in two dimensions.
The Projectile Launcher is designed to be clamped to a lab table while the Mini Launcher can be clamped directly to a table or used with the optional mounting rod.
Buy and save! The Projectile Launcher Smart Gate System is a complete package that includes our Mini Launcher, a Smart Gate and Projectile Mounting Bracket, a Table Clamp, and a Steel Mounting Rod for a lower price than buying each piece separately.
