An object launched into the air is referred to as a projectile. Projectiles have arc trajectories that can show the approximate path a projectile might take after being launched into the air. In the lab, vertical projectile motion and horizontal projectile motion are being explored with variance in height and angle of the launcher to observe the change in the arc trajectories and distance the projectile travels. Introduction In the lab, a launcher, ball, meter sticks and carbon paper were used to create a projectile. The launcher was set at a 90 o angle and a ball was placed in the launcher and pushed to the middle notch. The ball was then projected vertically and the apex of its arc trajectory was recorded. This was repeated several times and the data was recorded. For the second part of the lab, the launcher was set at different angles and the ball launched towards the wall. Meter sticks were used to measure the distance the ball traveled with

    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.
