Transcript of Projectile Motion Experiment

By: Abbie Swanson, Alex Gromacki. Kristen Kohles, and Steven Dierksmeier Projectile Motion Lab Data Purpose The goal of our projectile motion lab was to understand the components of a vector. We launched a metal ball into the air from a projectile launcher. We then recorded the time it took and the distance it went. We also adjusted the angle and force accordingly
- Launch pad
- projectile launcher
- metal ball
- stop clock
- two gates measuring time on projectile launcher Possible sources of error:
Air resistance
The stop clock Apparatus 1. We set up the projectile launcher on the ground and hooked up the stop clock to the launch pad. We also added the gates to the launcher.
2. We inserted the metal ball into the projectile launcher by using a black rod.
3. We set up the launcher to the according measure of degree. We used angles 30, 45, and 50.
4. We launched the metal ball and estimated where the metal ball will land. Summary Hypothesis:
If we know the distance, time, and the angle, then we can find the initial velocity, total velocity, the maximum height, maximum distance, and velocity in the x and y directions. POSITION VS POSITION The purpose was of this lab was to understand the components of vectors, such as maximum height, velocity, and position. We calculated these elements by using only time and and position. The y velocity graph is linear. The x velocity graph is horizontal. The position graph is a parabola. A real life situation would be throwing a softball which would make a similar shaped parabola. Conclusion VELOCITY (X) VS TIME VELOCITY (Y) VS TIME Examples Procedure
