ID Code: C2-41
Purpose: Illustrate addition of two orthogonal velocity components
Description: A billiard ball is placed at the corner of the apparatus. When the two mallets are pulled back and released they strike the ball simultaneously, giving it two orthogonal velocity components. The relative amount of each component is determined by how high each mallet is raised. Use the floor tiles to define your coordinates and show that equal forces in two orthogonal directions produce motion at 45 degrees with respect to the axes.
