This slingshot is a great way to have fun with your friends, and work on STEM skills at the same time!
It can launch 10-g pebbles 22.0m straight up into the air.
This means that it will be able to reach an altitude of about 4 times higher than its initial height off the ground.
One of the most interesting things about this project is that it can be used to work on STEM skills.
That’s because you’ll need to calculate how much energy it takes for a slingshot.
Then figure out what distance each pebble will travel horizontally.
When launched from the top in order to reach an altitude of 22 m.
For your convenience we’ve included step-by-step instructions below: Measurements (in cm): Length = L; Area A, Height H; Mass M= 0.01 kgs or 100 gms total weight L = 13800 *
