Simultaneous Fall/Shoot balls

This device must be held or attached t a ring stand - horizontally. One ball is given a horizontal component velocity while the other ball is dropped with only a vertical component. Place a pipe pan on the ground below where each will land so that it will be easier to hear when each lands. They hit at the same time. [This can be compared to shooting a bullet which lands ½ mile away and dropping one and they hit at the same time.]
