Both of these ballistic pendulum accessories use a Rotary Motion Sensor to measure the speed of the catcher assembly immediately after the collision, as well as the maximum height to which the pendulum swings. The Rotary Motion Sensor can also be used to measure the rotational inertia of the pendulum for a detailed study of the collision using conservation of angular momentum.
