Experience a taste of the medieval and ancient world with the Da Vinci Catapult Wooden Kit!
Made from natural, untreated wood, this catapult is one of da Vinci’s redesigns from the medieval catapults of 400 or so years before his time. Da Vinci's catapult uses the tension of bentwood instead of twisted ropes.
More 2 Science loves to encourage the study of physics. The catapult has fascinated people for centuries. We know this kit will answer some questions and is a great project for anyone interested in physics.
When a ball is thrown forward, it tends to fall toward the ground. But the thrower's hand applies an equal horizontal force - if not larger - because of air resistance. Catapults use the same equations of projectile motion. Gravity is the only force that affects the projectile once it launches.
Dimensions of the assembled catapult:
- W: 160mm
- L: 450mm
- H: 420 mm
Yes, this kit may be challenging for some. But without a challenge, where’s the fun?
