COLLISION IN 2D APPARATUS
This apparatus comprises a ‘Horizontal Ball Launcher’ and a device for measuring the velocity of a launched ball. Kinetic energy changes depending on the velocity of the ball and can be quantitatively obtained by measuring the distance moved by the sliding wooden block when it collides with the horizontally launched ball on the guide rail.
3x balls of different materials. (metal, ceramic & plastic) Launcher size dimensions: 1155 × 80 × 70mm with A plastic guide rail 1000mm long, horizontal launcher (3 speed levels) plus a sliding wooden block 15 × 100 × 40mm.
