Use the Time of Flight Pad to precisely measure how long a projectile has been in motion.
The Time of Flight Pad is designed for used with the Go Direct Projectile Launcher or the Vernier Projectile Launcher and is used to determine the time the projectile is in flight, along with the launch speed of a projectile reported by the launcher.

Time-of-flight measurements allow students to see just how kinematic calculations work in real-world applications.
The Time of Flight Pad is electrically like a photogate. When a ball strikes the foam top surface, a circuit is closed.
Includes student instructions, teacher tips, safety information, and sample data.
