Ballistic pendulum a ballistic pendulum is a device used to measure the speed of a bullet a bullet of mass m is fired at a block of wood (mass m) hanging from a string. 012-05375b ballistic pendulum/projectile launcher 1 introduction the pasco me-6830/me-6831 ballistic pendulum/ projectile launcher (bppl) has been designed for. This video has been moved to the pivot interactives science-teaching platform and is no longer freely available free trial accounts are available, so that you can access this video for a limited time while we. This very famous experiment combines a students understanding of position, velocity, momentum, acceleration, conservation of energy and momentum, potential and. Ballistic pendulum definition, a device consisting of a large mass hung from a horizontal bar by two rods, used to measure the velocity of an object, as a bullet, by retaining the object upon impact, its velocity being a function of the displacement of the mass see more.
The ballistic pendulum, invented in 1742 by english mathematician benjamin robins, revolutionized the science of ballistics as it provided the first way to accurately measure the velocity of a bullet the. Experimental technique: we used a projectile launcher to fire a ball into a pendulum with foam first we had to set up the launcher and the rotary motion sensor. Define ballistic pendulum: a pendulum with a bifilarly suspended bob that retains objects striking it and registers the amplitude of the swing caused. Purpose: to use the ballistic pendulum to determine the innitial velocity of a projectile using conservation of momentum and conservation of energy.
75425 cenco ballistic pendulum page 2 4 place the small, cylindrical set screw provided into the hole it fits in on the back side of the base. Ballistic pendulum lab purpose: to study the laws of conservation of linear momentum and of mechanical energy in an inelastic collision introduction. Experiment 8 ballistic pendulum conservation of linear momentum (before and immediately after the collision) conservation of energy (during the swing of the pendulum arm. Experiment 8 ballistic pendulum i introduction the objective of this experiment is to determine the initial velocity of a projectile fired from a gun by two methods. 1 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.
Ballistic pendulum the ballistic pendulum is a classic example of a dissipative collision in which conservation of momentum can be used for analysis, but conservation of energy during the collision cannot be invoked because the energy goes into inaccessible forms such as internal energy. Ballistic pendulum a 120-g rifle bullet is fired with a speed of 380 m/s into a wood block pendulum with mass 600 kg, suspended from two cords 700 cm long.
Product description trajectory path it has a nylon pendulum the base and the pendulum have. How does a ballistic pendulum give information about a bullet or ball here is a derivation of the classic introductory physics problem.

A bullet with mass m hits a ballistic pendulum with length l and mass m and lodges in it when the bullet hits the pendulum it swings up from the equilibrium position and reaches an angle at its maximum. Ballistic pendulum equipment safety glasses (not necessarily chemical goggles) calculator, computer ballistic pendulum apparatus (stand, launcher, pendulum, ball. Learning objective: conservation of momentum m1 v1 = m2 v2 mass of the projectile times speed of the projectile before impact = mass of the pendulum times speed of pendulum+projectile after impact the ballistic pendulum was invented in 1742 by english.
