Ballistic pendulum equipment- ballistic pendulum apparatus, 2 meter ruler, 30 cm ruler, blank paper, carbon paper, masking tape, scale, stop watch to measure the speed of a projectile by a kinematic method and by the use of a ballistic pendulum the latter figure 1: arrangement for studying a projectile in free fall 5. Ballistic pendulum, device for measuring the velocity of a projectile, such as a bullet a large wooden block suspended by two cords serves as the pendulum bob when a bullet is fired into the bob, its momentum is transferred to the bob the bullet's momentum can be determined from the amplitude of the pendulum swing. Finally you use a computer simulation to study the effect of air resistance on the trajectory of a horizontally a ratchet arrangement keeps the pendulum from falling back after it reaches its highest point and h is calculation of the range of the projectile: we will now move the ballistic pendulum out of the way and fire the. American institute of aeronautics and astronautics 1 study on detonation- engine momentum-and-thrust loss measurement by ballistic pendulum and laser displacement method tatsuro ashida1 university of tsukuba, tsukuba 305-8537, japan and jiro kasahara2 nagoya university, nagoya 464-8601, japan. The objective of this experiment is to study projectile motion physics lab report equipment: ballistic pendulum apparatus magic detecting paper (as was used in the projectile motion lab) masking tape meter stick and ruler the catapult lab phy 101: lab 4 projectile motion pre-lab assignment in this lab, you will be.
The not sure buttons will not affect your grade-- they simply allow you to mark areas that may require further study ballistic pendulum a red sphere (of mass m) and a blue sphere (of mass 5m) are attached to the ceiling by massless strings of identical length forming twin pendulums of length l the red sphere is drawn. In the case of the ballistic pendulum, the collision is inelastic because the bullet is embedded in the block to determine the velocity of the bullet that is fired into the block, start with the conservation of momentum: watch a ballistic pendulum in action:. Conservation laws and the ballistic pendulum introduction: many times it is impossible to measure a quantity directly perhaps the equipment has insufficient resolution, or perhaps the measuring device hasn't been invented sometimes the equipment isn't at hand, or it is too expensive in any case, the scientist has to.
Ballistic pendulum and conservation of momentum formal report for lab #8, physics 4a by bryan campbell 10 abstract in this paper, we aim to validate one the most important and frequently used tools of physics: the law of conservation of momentum we do so by comparing results from two experiments conducted. Positioned away from the gun), the gun can be used alone to launch the ball for the study of projectile motion the ballistic pendulum appears as an example in many well-known algebra- based 1 and calculus-based 2 textbooks, where it takes a somewhat different form strings or wires suspend a block of wood and a bullet. Study physics 1430 ballistics pendulum lab notes from michelle m.
The ballistic pendulum introduction: by this time, you have probably become familiar with the concepts of work, energy, and potential energy, in the lecture part of the course in this lab, we will be studying the transfer of kinetic energy to potential energy for an object with velocity, v, the kinetic energy (ke) is defined by the. Ballistic pendulum/projectile launcher 012-05375b ® ii equipment return should the product have to be returned to pasco scientific, for whatever reason, notify pasco scientific by letter, phone, or fax before returning the product upon notification, the return authorization and shipping instructions will be promptly. Ballistic pendulum shock pendulum to study the laws of conservation of momentum and the trajectory path it has a nylon pendulum the base and the pendulum have leveling screws the scale is marked in degrees and is registered by a counter weighted needle that remains in place at the height of the arc has an.
A ballistic pendulum is a device for measuring a bullet's momentum, from which it is possible to calculate the velocity and kinetic energy ballistic pendulums have been largely rendered obsolete by modern chronographs, which allow direct measurement.
Andrea roman 03/01/2016 projectile motion: the ballistic pendulum objective: to study the conservation of energy and momentum using projectile motion theory: in this experiment we will obtain experimental measurements using a ballistic pendulum that is used to measure the initial velocity of a horizontally projected. Centripetal force on a pendulum (ex-5505) c grading a 2: the student uses a systematic approach to answer scientific laboratory and field analysis and the ability to author electronic lab reports an instrumented ballistic pendulum linear momentum or ballistic pendulum in this experiment you study the complex. After describing robins' ballistic pendulum in general an outline is presented of the contributions to the elementary theory of the impact of translating point masses between the time of marcus marci (b1595) and christopher wren (1632 –1723) the archives of the academie des sciences, french historical studies, vol.
