Abstract In this experiment we will learn more about projectile motion and it’s components, horizontal and vertical. With the use of a spring loaded projectile launcher attached to the end of our lab tables and the use of the constant acceleration equations listed on the page 3-1 of the lab manual. With these constant acceleration equations we will be able to find the initial velocity of the ball, vertical displacement, average horizontal displacement and the time of flight. This experiment is a portrayal and tutorial of how an object moves in two dimensions.
Data Data Table 1: Exercise 1 Vertical Displacement 0.91 m Average Horizontal Displacement, x 1.38 m Calculated Time of Flight, t 0.43 s Calculated Average initial Velocity, v i 3.20 m/s *(Calculations of these can be found in the calculation section)* Data Table 2: Exercise 2 X 2 x g y x 2 0 0 0.098 2 0.392 4 0.882 8 1.568 14 2.45 22 3.528 30 4.802 40 The data table to the top left is the original data collected just from measuring with a meter stick.
