## Description

#### TRAJECTORY APPARATUS KIT

[Available while stocks last !].

This rugged, compact device allows students to clearly visualize and quantify projectile motion.

A steel ball is launched repeatedly from the same place on a ramp and strikes a recording paper on a target plate that is moved horizontally each time.

Trajectory shape and properties marks are transferred to the background graph paper.

(Wiki excerpt: “…*A trajectory “T” or flight path is the path that an object with mass in motion follows through space as a function of time. In classical mechanics, a “T” is defined by Hamiltonian mechanics via canonical coordinates; hence, a complete “T” is defined by position and momentum, simultaneously… **The mass might be a projectile or a satellite. For example, it can be an orbit â€” the path of a planet, asteroid, or comet as it travels around a central mass…..**In control theory, a “T” is a time-ordered set of states of a dynamical system (see e.g. PoincarĂ© map). In discrete mathematics, a “T” is a sequence …..)*
