Introduction: Energy conservation is the principle that describes the transformation of energy from one form to another: for a given system, as long as all the types of energy within the system are accounted for, the total energy of the system (closed) must be constant. This experiment is a demonstration of energy conservation in that the gravitational potential energy at the start of the launch is partially converted to kinetic energy Procedure: Part 1 – Calculating the Initial velocity of the ball from its range 1. Put the ball in the launcher and turn it to the middle position. Push the ball in one click. Fire the ball and observe where it lands. This is where a piece of white paper should be taped. Place a piece of carbon paper, carbon side down, on the white paper. 2.
