wrong number into the calculator. I believe our calculations for velocity and distance from the trials at different angles give a good picture projectile motion. If a ball is shot up in the air at an angle 45°, it has a greater distance and velocity than a ball that is being shot horizontally at 0°....
Projectile Motion Purpose: An object in a projectile motion move horizontally with no acceleration and vertically with the gravitational acceleration at the same time. This experiment is to investigate projectile motion using experiments, equations and comparing the expected and experimental data...
College Physics 1 Lab - Section 001 CP1 Lab Report - Projectile Motion October 12, 2009 The purpose of Lab Assignment 1 was to analyze projectile motion. In doing so, we determined the initial velocity of the ball shot horizontally from the spring loaded projectile launcher. Also, we verified...
Abstract In this lab experiment the range equation will be used to calculate range of the launched rocket, initial velocity and distance traveled. Various projectiles will be tested at various angles and table heights for experiment one. Results will be compared to initial calculations. Despite human...
Projectile Motion You have probably watched a ball roll off a table and strike the floor. What determines where it will land? Could you predict where it will land? In this experiment, you will roll a ball down a ramp and determine the ball’s velocity with a pair of Photogates. You will use this information...

Title Projectile Motion Abstract A projectile was fired from atop an elevation and an angle. The initial velocity for each firing was likely to be the same. The distance traveled in the horizontal direction was measured for multiple firings of each trial, and the values were averaged. When the initial velocity for ...
Projectile Motion PHYS111 Formal Report 2 University of Canterbury Campbell Moulder Abstract The force of gravity is said to be a constant of 9.81 ms-2 (3). This can be proved by measuring the projectile motion of a bouncy ball and plotting a ∆Vertical Velocity vs. Time graph, the gradient...
Introduction: Good morning friends and classmates. Good morning, Sir. In this report, we will talk about the concept of Projectile Motion. Now, for you to have a clearer concept of what you had in mind about this and before I give you the definition, I want to start with giving you an example. So,...
Lab II, Problem 3: Projectile Motion and Velocity Oct. 06, 2013 Physics 1301W, Professor: Hanany, TA: Vladimir Abstract A ball is tossed obliquely. The vectors of position and velocity are measured. The acceleration is calculated. Introduction A toy company is now making an instructional...
Projectile Motion Lab: Using a Toy Gun Purpose: The purpose of this investigation is to measure the vertical displacement, or height of the launch, and the horizontal displacement, or range, travelled by a projectile (bullet from toy gun). Questions: What is the shape of the actual path travelled...
Harmonic Motion Lab Report Introduction Simple harmonic motion is the motion of a mass on a spring when it is subject to the linear elastic restoring force given by Hooke’s Law. In this lab, we will observe simple harmonic motion by studying masses on springs. In the first part of this lab, you will...
Damped Harmonic Motion Erica Partner: Steven November 8, 2012 Abstract During this experiment, the effects that the size of an object had on air resistance were observed and determined. To do this, a spring was set up with a circular object hanging at the end. After the spring constant...

A projectile is any object that is given an initial velocity and follows a path determined by the effects of gravitational acceleration and air resistance. Projectile motion is the act of projecting an object into the air at an angle when a curved path is an object follows when thrown or...
Pre-lab: 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...
Projectile motion into physics Objective: Our purpose for this lab was to observe projectile motion 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...
Experiment 4 Projectile Motion Introduction We examined projectile motion by observing a ball rolling down then leaving the ramp, thus becoming a projectile with a horizontal initial velocity. We measured the horizontal initial velocity using the photogate and computer. We measured the horizontal...
