Physics I Laboratory Worksheet
Lab 4: Projectile Motion
Objectives: Using a projectile gun on an incline plane, calculate the velocity of the steel ball at ten different distances, then find the average velocity. In order to find the velocity of the steel ball two different equations are needed. In order to find the velocity of the steel ball fired from the projectile gun on an inclined plane, the first equation must be manipulated and substituted into the second equation. Then use the average velocity to determine the distance of a projectile being released at a different angle. Physics Principles:

* Converting from centimeters to meters
* Trigonometric functions
* Quadratic formula:x=-b±b2-4ac2a
* Know how to get the derived formula:
Materials Needed:
* Projectile gun
* Projectile
* Incline paper
* Carbon paper
* 4 sheets of regular printing paper
* Tape Measure
* Calculator
* Pen
* Notebook paper
Pre-Lab exercise: Using the two formulas solve forv0.
Equation 1: x= v0xt(vox=v0cosθ)
x=v0cosθ(t)
t=xv0cosθ
Equation 2: y= y0+v0yt-12gt2(v0y=v0sinθ)
y= y0+v0sinθxv0cosθ-12gxv0cosθ2
y= y0+xsinθcosθ-12gx2v02cos2θ

Procedure:
1. Tape 4 sheets of carbon paper together portrait style, end to end. Tape 4 sheets of printing paper using the same portrait style. Then tape 4 sheets of regular printing paper behind the carbon paper. Make sure to adjust the bottom edge of the taped sheets so that the bottom touches the ground. 2. Next, assemble the projectile gun with the incline plane. The angle of the incline plane was placed at 35 degrees and make sure the wing is secure so that it will not slip. 3. Test fire the projectile gun and record the distance in centimeters...

Newtons Three Laws of Motion:
There are three laws of motion that have been stated by Sir Isaac Newton during the sixteenth century that are looked upon even today.
The first of these laws states that an object will stay in at rest or in a constant velocity unless a force acts upon it. In simplest terms this means that if u place an apple on the table it isn't just going to roll off.
The second of these laws states that when a force acts upon...

...focus was projectilemotion. A projectile is an object flying through the air that is only under the force of gravity (neglecting air resistance). A projectile moves both horizontally and vertically, which creates a parabolic flight path. In vertical projectilemotion there is a constant velocity since there are no forces in the horizontal direction (neglecting drag due to air resistance). Consequently,...

...hill. Determine the initial horizontal velocity of the soccer ball.
Problem Type 2:
A projectile is launched at an angle to the horizontal and rises upwards to a peak while moving horizontally. Upon reaching the peak, the projectile falls with a motion that is symmetrical to its path upwards to the peak. Predictable unknowns include the time of flight, the horizontal range, and the height of the projectile when it is at its peak....

ProjectileMotion
Abstract:
The Project motion of a catapult being fired is varied by a range of factors that affect the path of the projectile. In this experiment, the angle of trajectory, mass of the projectile and change in initial velocity of the launch, were all factors considered in the end result to investigate the...
