The newly redesigned version provides the same level of accuracy and repeatability as before but with a more rugged enclosure that will withstand projectile impacts for years and years without issue.
The Time-of-Flight Accessory is designed primarily for free fall or projectile experiments. When a projectile is launched or object dropped, a photogate starts the timing of one of PASCO’s timing systems. When the object hits the plate of the Time-of-Flight Accessory and makes a noise, a signal is sent to the interface to stop the timer. The signal is identical to the signal sent by a blocked photogate.
When used with PASCO’s Projectile Launcher or Mini Launcher, the Time-of-Flight Accessory demonstrates the relationship between time-of-flight, angle, distance, and initial velocity.
- Use with all PASCO launchers
- Conduct freefall experiments
Two Photogate Heads needed for Horizontal Distance experiment.
- Time-of-Flight Versus Initial Velocity
- Horizontal Distance
- Horizontal Velocity is Constant
