Ballistic Pendulum Experiment

Written by Arturo I. ABSTRACT For experiment 13 Ballistic Pendulum, we used the conservation of momentum and mechanical energy to determine the velocity of a ball as it is shot from a launcher. The angle was measured every time the launcher was released for method A. For method B, we removed the pendulum bob and shot the ball off the table onto the floor, where we recorded the distance of the x axis from the table to the spot where […]
