Day 127: Nerf Gun Energy Tracking

20130410-202042.jpg

We are doing student designed experiments to measure the energy converted to thermal energy in the process of their choosing. These students ambitiously took on the energy loss of a Nerf dart in flight. Amazingly, they have succeeded in getting what seems to be good data where the dart fully passed through both photogates. Super fun and interesting.
