In this experiment we used a pendulum to determine the initial velocity of a ball which was 6.07 m/s. We were able to determine this by launching the ball horizontally and measuring the height and range of the launcher. The distance ranged from 2.734m – 3.00m. We were also able to calculate the time of flight which was 0.428s. By measuring the angle, we were able to get an average angle of 39.5 degrees and a muzzle velocity of 5.31.
