Leslie Franco, 3rd, 12/14/16 Marshmallow Catapults I. The purpose of this experiment is to determine how the angle at which it will launch and how it affects the marshmallow to see which one will go the farthest. II. In this lab, catapults use projectile motion to launch objects. We will launch an object at an angle. We will set up the wooden block and a spoon catapult with a protractor. We will line up with any angle choice marked on the protractor. Placed a marshmallow on the spoon and let go. After, measure how far the marshmallow traveled and record the distance in the data table and repeat the steps for 4 more times. III. We hypothesize that at 75 angle, the launch of the marshmallow will have an effect on the farthest distance. IV. The materials we will use are marshmallows, meter stick, protractor, and wooden block/ spoon catapult. V. Procedure - See handout VI. Results - See attachment VII. Conclusion - The goal was to see if the angle the marshmallow is being thrown at affects
