The Launcher S is a projectile launcher for studying trajectories at vertical positions, horizontal positions and at intermediate angles. It can also be used to demonstrate how horizontal and vertical motion of projectiles are independent.
The angle of launch can be set to any arbitrary angle thanks to the built-in protractor scale and plumb line.
Different Launch Velocities
The launcher can launch projectiles at three different velocities, enabling a range of experiments on trajectories to be performed.
Two balls can be released simultaneously from both sides of the launcher, the lower of which will descend in free fall.
