Unformatted text preview: PHY 113 : Projectile Motion Students name: Jarrod Harbour Lab partners: Jeff Weber and Lacy Butler Date of experiment: October 2, 2008 Section SLN: 79951 TAs name: Jea-Young Choi Abstract: This experiment will deal with kinematics and projectile motion that can be observed in everyday life. Using Newtons laws for simple projectile motion and our model to experiment Newtons laws, this experiment will prove the kinematics model to be valid I. Objective The reason for this experiment is to test the validity of the kinematics model. This model will be based on Newtons laws for simple projectile motion. There are two things that should be thought of to understand kinematics. The first thing to know is that the distance travelled in the horizontal direction is proportional to the time of flight. When the distance of an object increases, the time of flight also increases. The second thing that should be known is the distance the object travels in the vertical direction is proportional...
