Lab #3: InitialVelocity of a Projectile
Theory:
How can we determine the initialvelocity of a projectile?
Experimental Design:
The purpose behind this experiment was to determine the initialvelocity of a projectile. Projection motion consists of kinematics of motion in the x and y directions. With two dimension kinematics, there are the x and y components in any given velocity. In projectile motion, the x component has no acceleration as no outside forces are acting on it. The Y component on the other hand has gravity acting as a force.
A small ball is shot, at three various angles (30,45,60), and through the known values the initialvelocity of the ball is found. As a result, the range of the project can be represented with the equation
1) R = V02g*Sin2θ , where R represents the range or Dx; the values of g and θ are known.
However, in this experiment, one main equation were used to determine the initialvelocity.
1) yy0=tanθxgx22(V0cosθ)2 , where y is the trajectory of a particle in two dimensional motion, gravity is 9.81 m/s 2 , and θ is the launch angle. X is equal to the average distance launched in the x direction.
In order to...

...1). A stone is dropped from rest from the top of a tall building, as Figure 2.17 indicates. After 3.00 s of freefall, what is the displacement y of the stone?
 The stone, starting with zero velocity at the top of the building, is accelerated downward by gravity. 

Reasoning The upward direction is chosen as the positive direction. The initialvelocity v0 of the stone is zero, because the stone is dropped from rest. The acceleration due to gravity is negative, since it points downward in the negative direction.
Solution

2). After 3.00 s of freefall, what is the velocity v of the stone?

1). A football game customarily begins with a coin toss to determine who kicks off. The referee tosses the coin up with an initial speed of 5.00 m/s. In the absence of air resistance, how high does the coin go above its point of release?
Reasoning The coin is given an upward initialvelocity. But the acceleration due to gravity points downward. Since the velocity and acceleration point in opposite directions, the coin slows down as it moves upward. Eventually, the velocity of the coin becomes v=0 m/s at the highest point.
 At the start of a football game, a referee tosses a coin upward with an initialvelocity of v0=+5.00 m/s. The velocity of the coin is momentarily zero when the...
...What is Force?
In physics, a force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change, either concerning its movement, direction, or geometrical construction. It is measured with the SI unit of newtons and represented by the symbol F. In other words, a force is that which can cause an object with mass to change its velocity(which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e., to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity.
The original form of Newton's second law states that the net force acting upon an object is equal to the rate at which its momentum changes with time.[1] If the mass of the object is constant, this law implies that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object, is in the direction of the net force, and is inversely proportional the mass of the object. As a formula, this is expressed as:
where the arrows imply a vector quantity possessing both magnitude and direction.
Related concepts to force include: thrust, which increases the velocity of an object; drag, which decreases the velocity of an object; and torque which produces changes in...
