Physics Lab Report #7

“Analyzing a Projectile’s Motion”

Name: Fei Huo

Date performed: October 22st, 2014

Period 5

Teacher: Mr. Glasel

Purpose:
The purpose of this lab was to examine the behavior of a projectile’s motion

Introduction:
My Classmates and I were doing experiments in lab about and the distance of an object thrown. We were given formulas to solve the problems. We had to fill in a chart and do some questions.

Procedures:
1. First, my classmates and I were to fill in a chart (in data table) from the graph above. 2. Second, my class discussed about how we were suppose to fill in the chart and talk about how to fill it in. 3. Third, we were provided with formulas that we used to fill in the chart. 4. Fourth, my class and I filled in the average horizontal velocity, average horizontal acceleration, Initial horizontal velocity, average horizontal velocity, average vertical acceleration, and the initial vertical velocity. 5. Fifth, we worked on the questions by explaining each of the questions one by one.
