This Ring Launcher has been optimized to maximize safety by enclosing all wiring inside the case. A thermal shutoff switch protects the coil by preventing overheating.
Includes a coil with a bulb that lights by induction when the coil is placed over the launcher core. Also includes five rings: one split aluminum ring that will not launch, one copper ring, one shorter aluminum ring, and two regular length aluminum rings.
A classic demonstration
In this demo, an aluminum ring is propelled straight up by the Lorentz force that arises from the interaction between the alternating magnetic field of the coil and the current induced in the ring.
For great demo ideas using the PASCO Ring Launcher, check out James Lincoln’s AAPT video. James explains how the Ring Launcher works and walks you through all the classic demonstrations.
