Introduction
Projectile motion is a type of motion that consists of horizontal and vertical motions which are independent from each other, known as vector components. For an object to be considered a projectile, it must not be self-propelled. Projectiles move horizontally at a constant velocity. However, they undergo uniform acceleration in the vertical direction, which is caused by gravity. An important aspect of projectile motion is that the time it takes for the object to travel on the Y axis is exactly the same as the time it takes to travel on the X axis. A practical example of this would be if you were to drop a bullet and fire a gun simultaneously and at the same height, they would both hit the ground at the exact same time. Projectiles are launched in 2 ways: horizontal launch and vertical launch. Horizontal launch is the when the object is launched horizontally from a height. An example of horizontal launch would be rolling a ball off a table. Angular motion is when the object is launched at an angle to the horizontal. An example of an angular launch would be a throwing a football. Understanding projectile motion allows for many real world problems to be solved.

Purpose: What is the instantaneous acceleration of the puck for different Δv vectors?

Procedure:
1) On a large sheet, 2 sets of data were printed, one for linear motion and one for projectile motion. 2) For the linear motion print, vectors were drawn between 3 adjacent dots for 3 different sets. 3) Velocity vector was determined by dividing the displacement vector by the time interval of 40 ms. 4) ΔV was calculated using Δv = v2 – (-v1). Acceleration for each Δv vector was calculated using a = Δv/t. Answer was converted to m/s. 5) Steps 2-5 were repeated for the two remaining pairs of displacement vectors. 6) For the initial horizontal projectile motion, a grid was drawn vertically and horizontally through the dots...

Experiment # 4
Introduction:
ProjectileMotion exists commonly in our everyday lives and is particularly evident in the motion or flight of objects which are projected from a particular height. The key to working with projectilemotion is recognizing that when an object with mass is flying through the air, its motion is a combination of vertical and...

...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...

Objective:
Our purpose for this lab was to observe projectilemotion and use the equations of motion to predict the objects location in different instances of time. We used a projectile launcher and a ball to observe these properties of motion. The main equation used in this lab was d=Vit+1/2at^2 where Vit will produce the distance due to constant...

Abstract:
This experiment determined the maximum distance a projectile can travel in the best angle range by shooting a projectile at various angles then measuring the distance travelled. This experiment used a toy gun, Nerf N-Strike Jolt Ex-1, which was attached to a wooden structure with a u-hook...

...ProjectileMotion
The purpose of this lab is to study the properties of projectilemotion. From the motion of a steel ball projected horizontally, the initial velocity of the ball can be determined from the measured range. For a given initial velocity, the projectile range will be measured for various initial angles, and also calculated by applying the theory for motion with constant...
