Catapult Launch covered by Irondequoit Post

Recommended Posts

IRONDEQUOIT, Nov. 1, 2010 -- Students in physics classes taught by Dan Fullerton and Mike Powlin at Irondequoit High School were outside most of the day Friday, Oct. 29, testing the catapults they built by applying physics principles and concepts. Teams of students launched softballs from their catapults on the school's track, then measured their projectiles' range and time in the air. Based on those measurements, students will then apply their physics principles to calculate maximum projectile height, launch velocity and launch angle. The event was the first of a series of four "championship of physics" competitions during the current school year.
