This study focuses on the different factors that affect the game results of the throwing events namely, javelin throw, discus throw, and shot put throw. It is observed that during athletic meets, the winner is determined by the farthest throwing distance. However, this distance does not sum up the outstanding performance of a winning athlete. Several factors are deemed to be essential in strategically winning a throwing event. For instance, an athlete may need more effort in performing as compared to another because of certain physical or strategic hindrances. These hindrances seem to be inexistent when a game is analyzed using the distance covered only.

Thus for the purposes of this study, the competition outcome is defined to be the resulting projectile from the throw. In analyzing the projectile, the research is opened to the influences of strategies beyond throwing the farthest. These factors can be grouped into three aspects: the thrown object’s standard measures, the strategy, and the player’s characteristics. First, the projectile allows us to examine the effects of the thrown object’s standard measures to the throwing ability of a player. These measurements include the weight of the object, and its circumference, in the case of the shot put and the discus, or its length, in the case of the javelin. Second, the projectile exposes the possibility of implementing various strategies that may affect the throwing distance, such as the angle of the throw and the velocity of the turn, in the case of the shot put and discus throw, or run, in the case of the javelin throw. Finally, the projectile also somehow illustrates the advantages or disadvantages of the player’s characteristics like height, weight, and body-build.

Consequently, the research will not be tied to the distance results of the throwing events. Rather, it will be concerning thee different projectile elements – distance, height, angle, and force – as they are influenced by...

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
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
Objectives:
The purpose of this experiment is to examine the projectilemotion of a ball launched horizontally. The initial velocity will be calculated. The range of the ball will be measured.
Theory:
Horizontal launch of the ball allows computing the initial velocity v0 by measuring the height of the launch and the distance traveled by the ball:
h=, s=v0 ∙ t
Solving these parametric...

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...
