TRAJECTORY APPARATUS KIT

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.

Comprises:

  • plotting board 360 x 430mm,
  • two wooden supports,
  • adjustable aluminum launcher with a stop,
  • aluminum target plate,
  • steel ball,
  • graph paper,
  • precut target paper.

Wikipedia info
(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 — 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. Poincaré map). In discrete mathematics, a “T” is a sequence …..)
