Gordon Chen PHY 133 – L02 2/12/09 Projectile Motion Abstract: Projectile Motion occurs in a two dimensional plain. It is the movement of an object across a plain where a certain a velocity is exerted on the object. Then the object lands at a particular location from the starting point. In this lab, a metal ball is released 3 times for 5 different heights on the launching ramp, which equals to 15 trials. The ball, while traveling down the launching ramp, will pass through the Photogate, which records the time it takes the metal ball to pass the gate. A sheet of carbon paper is placed on the floor to mark the distance the ball has traveled form the table. Then the time and distance is used to determine the velocity of the ball during each of the 15 trials. After the trials, we saw that the higher up the ramp the ball was released, the greater the velocity which produced further landing points on the floor. Equations:
