EISCO Ballistics Car

(1) Ballistics car, (2) steel balls, (1) lock pin

The ballistics car demonstrates that the horizontal component of the velocity of a body thrown vertically upward from another body moving horizontally is the same as that of the body moving horizontally and independent of the vertical component of velocity. Thus, a ball ejected from the vertical barrel of the Ballistic Car moving with uniform velocity return back to its original position into the barrel.

The apparatus consists of a heavy metallic barrel mounted vertically on an aluminum car. The car has plastic wheels with ball bearings to minimize friction. Spring loaded piston arrangement with two compressions settings of spring for ejecting the ball to two different heights. Complete with steel ball and a lock -pin with cord. Comes with detailed instructions.
