Vernier Projectile Launcher


The Vernier Projectile Launcher is used to investigate important physics concepts regarding speed and velocity. It is a pneumatic launching system that provides the students the ability to set a specific launch speed based on the design of the experiment and an easy and accurate measurement of the projectile's launch velocity allowing for precise quantitative analysis of projectile motion. In these photos, you can see the students launching metal balls into the air and measuring the distance they traveled!
