Unformatted text preview: angle of 20 degrees. Using some trigonometric equations, range and trajectory equations, determine the height of the object at or after 150cm from the starting position. Once confident with our calculations we tested our prediction for the professor. Data: Initial Velocity tests, distances launched at 0 degrees: 41.75 in, 40.5 in, 41.5 in, 41 in, 41.5 in. Average distance = 41.25 in or 1.04775 m. Using x x v t = + initial velocity = 4.5320 m/s. Time = 0.23119 s. Using the Range equation we found the distance of the object at the end of the flight to be 1.56 m from the starting ‘x’ value. But, this was used expecting the initial ‘y’ and ending ‘y’ values to be zero. So, at 156 cm in the ‘x’ direction the object is 26.19 cm in the ‘y’ direction (up). Conclusion: Using this data we were able to successfully land the object in the target, giving us a successful lab....
