Rockford White Dr.Butler 12/20/18 APE Projectile motion Intro: This experiment was to help us understand projectile motion. We conducted three different types of experiments running multiple trials for each. We then calculated the averages finding the distance we got for each experiment. We were able to better understand what affects the differences in distance and how to get the greatest distance. Data: Vertical Launch: Distance Average 123 cm 122.4 cm 121 cm 1.224 m 121 cm 123 cm 121 cm

Analysis: The experiment was split into 3 separate parts: the vertical launch, the horizontal launch, and the angled launch. For the first part, we had the launcher at a 90* angle, so that the ball would launch straight up. The second part had the launcher laying at a 0* angle, and finally the third

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
