Experimental ProcedureIn Part I of the experiment, we position a mini launcher on a horizontal table surface. We measure y, the vertical distance from the ground to the launcher, and x, the horizontal distance from the little launcher to where the ball lands. Using these values of x and y and our linear motion equations, we determine t and v0. Then we find a horizontal distance, D, that a target hole
