Projects in High-Speed Photography

 

Photographic Results -- Part I

 

These are the first results from a photographic study of the rubber band. The composite of photographs below shows 7 separate firings of the rubber band. The time delay (photogate triggering to flash discharge) is given for each image in units of milliseconds (0.001 s). Some variation in the shape and position of the band is to be expected from one firing to the next due to the inability to release the band exactly the same way every time. Nevertheless, conclusions about the motion of the band can be reached.
