PreLab Three 1. See graphs 2. As the ball ascends in the air, it slowly stops midair and changes its direction so that it returns to its initial vertical position 3. As the ball’s velocity starts going upward, it will eventually stops midair and its velocity is reversed and should finish at the same velocity it starts. 4. After the ball is launched its acceleration is automatically slowing down til the ball stops midair. Once this happens, gravity takes over the ball and the ball falls until it reaches the ground once again. 5. When the ball reaches its highest point in its arch, the ball’s velocity and acceleration are at zero.

Unformatted text preview: However, throughout this whole period, gravity still has an effect on the ball, so immediately after the ball is at zero, gravity has an effect on the ball and it begins to drop to the ground. 6. Two important limitations for the motion detectors are that they can only measure so close to an object and that their area of sight is only so big, so because of this, if the user wants an accurate find, they must make sure the object they are measuring is far away enough and within the sight of the detector....
