PASCO’s Mini Launcher provides a low-cost method for every student to thoroughly investigate projectile motion. The Mini-Launcher has the same level of precision and accuracy as our larger Projectile Launcher (ME-6800), but is easier to assemble, simple to adjust, and provides built-in storage for the plunger and metal balls. With three, highly repeatable launch speeds, precise launch angle measurements, and the ability to shoot downward, the Mini Launcher enables students to explore projectiles through dynamic, hands-on inquiry.
This highly accurate launcher can be attached to a table using a standard C clamp. For more in-depth projectile studies, we recommend adding a Photogate Mounting Bracket and either a Smart Gate or Photogate Head. Additionally, the Time of Flight Accessory can be added to measure the total time the projectile is in the air.
