How to Use a Ballistic Pendulum to Study Velocity, Momentum, and Motion

January 22, 2020

In this video, we'll show you how to re-create this classic physics demonstration in your classroom using a ballistic pendulum apparatus, and offer tips and ideas for a variety of activities you can do with your students. Learn how to use this innovative projectile motion apparatus to design repeatable experiments in your physics classroom and cover a variety of topics with one piece of equipment, including: - Conservation of energy - Conservation of angular momentum - Projectile motion - Velocity - And more! We'll show you how to adjust the apparatus to use it as a rigid arm pendulum, a horizontal projectile launcher, or a complex projectile launcher. Ready, aim, launch!
