Matt Idleman 9/30 Lab – Part 1: For the first part of this lab, the question we were asked was if the horizontal velocity of a ball will stay constant throughout its journey. My prediction was that the horizontal velocity of the ball will indeed stay constant throughout its journey. To test this prediction, our group first took a small ball and stopwatch, and calibrated the horizontal velocity by throwing the ball against a wall at a set distance and recording the time it took for the ball to hit the wall. Then, by dividing the distance by the recorded time, we got our velocity. This was then plotted as a line on our distance vs. time graph. Next, our group threw the ball horizontally in the hallway at as close to the same velocity as possible as before, and measured the distance and time for the ball to hit the ground. We took multiple trials and plugged all of our results into the graph as points. Results:
