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 α. Ballistic pendulum: 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.
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.

The ballistic pendulum objective: after you finish this lab you should know: the difference between elastic and inelastic collisions which conservation laws apply to each type of. A student researched lab analysis exploring the ballistic pendulum the goal was to determine the velocity of a ball as it is shot from a launcher.Download
