y I. Introduction
In this lab the main focus was projectile motion. 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 projectile motion there is a constant velocity since there are no forces in the horizontal direction (neglecting drag due to air resistance). Consequently, there is no acceleration in horizontal projectile motion. In vertical projectile motion gravity is acting on the projectile, which means that the acceleration in vertical projectile motion is equal to gravity’s acceleration (9.8m/s2). Some equations for projectile motion are the three kinematic equations, the equation for Vx (Vx = ∆x/∆t), and the equation for time (∆t = 2∆y/g). The purpose of this lab was to get a projectile falling off a ramp on a table to land in a cup by using equations that are related to projectile motion. The hypothesis was that if all the calculations were correct (based on the horizontal and vertical speed of the projectile, the height of the table, the height of the cup, the time for the projectile to pass through the time gates, and the overall range of the projectile) the projectile would fall into the cup.

II. Procedure
Materials
* A ramp
* Clamp
* Marble
* String
* Washers
* Light probes with computerized recorder
* Styrofoam cup
Procedure
1. Place the ramp on the edge of a table not to close to a wall or anything that the marble might hit. Secure the ramp down with a clamp. Tie a string and attach one watcher to it so that it is just above the ground. 2. Set up the light probes by placing them over the ramp where it becomes horizontal. Make sure they are working right by testing if something goes threw it, than the light on the probe turns red and that the light is green when nothing is moving threw it. 3. Drop the marble from...

...Assessment Task #1: Part A
Open ended investigation By Rex Whiticker
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 properties of...

...ProjectileMotion
Purpose: Apply the concepts of two-dimensional kinematics (projectilemotion) to predict the impact point of an object as its velocity increases.
Introduction: The most common example of an object that is moving in two dimensions is a projectile. A projectile is an object upon which the only force acting is gravity. That is to say a projectile is any object...

Sai Moua
Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to define what the initial velocity of the ball when it is launched out of the pipe. Our next objective is to determine at what angle that the ball will be ejected at the maximum range. Lastly, we predict and confirm the range before we launch the ball at a certain angle.
Theory: Projectilemotion according to Dr. James S. Walker is defined as, “the...

...is thrown, hurled or shot in the air, the object is a PROJECTILE (“Projectile”). The study of projectile is important because it must be realized that they are very much part of man’s daily life then and now. Whether man likes it or not, he encounters and uses projectile in his everyday life. Our hunting ancestors threw stones and spears on animals to kill them for their food.
In today’s sports, balls follow...
