Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that the acceleration,  velocity, and position of an object in projectile motion could be broken down into  rectangular components.  Procedure: The first step to beginning the lab was to capture the video of Lucy  throwing the ball. The camera captured the movement of the ball as is bounced  up and then fell back to the floor. Then we followed all the steps to analyze the  video using the World in Motion software. The first kinetic motion that we  analyzed was the position vs. time graph. We looked at the graphs of both the  horizontal and vertical positions. Then we analyzed the graph of the velocity and  found the acceleration by looking at the slope. We also used the graph to  calculate the acceleration due to gravity. We found the magnitude and direction
