Visual Scientifics PTPROJ Projectile Launcher
Visual Scientifics Projectile Launcher is used to study kinematic equations, and conversion between gravitational potential and kinetic energy. Students participate in an interactive experiment for measuring the muzzle velocity of the launcher to identify varying launch angles in order to quantify the initial kinetic energy of the projectile (ball). Using their velocity calculations, students then make predictions about where the ball will land. The kit includes a projectile launcher, mounting hardware, ball, and a protractor with bob for hands-on learning, and has steel construction for durability. Steel is a good general-purpose material, with better weldability and increased rust resistance over wrought iron.
