ME15.2 Ballistic Cart

The PASCO Ballistic Cart shoots a plastic ball straight up while in motion. If the cart is moving at a constant velocity, the ball will fall back into the catcher on the cart. The ball is released using a photogate, so there is no impulse given to the cart upon release as there is in other models relying on a string to release the ball. The barrel can be aimed to ensure that the ball is short vertically. Special no bounce foam prevents the ball from bouncing back out of the catcher cup.
