Need Some Help

  1. Nov 1, 2004 #1
    I have a problem that I need some help on. I have some product that I need to separate by weight
    Product 1 is 15 grams
    Product 2 is 22 grams
    Product 3 is 28 grams
    Could I use a conveyor to get these 3 items up to 21 MPH, have them shoot off the end on the conveyor, and have them sort themselves by distance traveled before hitting the ground. Or any other ideas??
    Thanks in advance for any help you may give.

    Ignoring air resistance, the trajectory of a projectile is independent of its mass.
