Huynh, Anne June 30, 2008 Vinh Dang Kieu Tri Ben Lee Tania Gomez Projectile Motion Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to study and predict the course of the motion of a projectile. We did so using mainly a projectile launcher with a nylon ball which demonstrated projectile motion. The objective was to validate that the forces of an object in free fall has two dimensions which can be predicted by treating the motion as two separate motions. For each motion, horizontal and vertical, we found the velocity of the component and later used our calculations in order to fire the launcher and hopefully get it though the center of a hoop. Summary: Even though we were asked to fire the projectile about five times, each time the ball landed in relatively same spots on the carbon paper which demonstrated that the launcher was fairly precise. We calculated distance, acceleration, velocity and time for the y-motion and distance and velocity for the x-motion. In part II of the lab we found the highest point in the trajectory measured horizontally and vertically from the launch point and we used those

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
