Objective: To experimentally prove Newton’s Law of Projectile Motion using a kinematic apparatus, creating the horizontal velocity by way of gravitational forces acting on the steel ball in time of flight and distance mode. Procedure: The lab group was given a kinematic apparatus consisting of, one steel ball, V-shaped track, two photo gate sensors, and one floor sensor. The steel ball is positioned on the v-shaped track at position 1. The ball is then let go by one lab member of the team as the ball goes down the incline part of the track. The velocity picks up once reaching the horizontal portion of the track it passes through the sensors and launches off the track to the floor sensor where two members of the lab group are monitoring the floor sensor and to catch the steel ball from rolling away. On the floor sensor a member of the team attached a sheet of carbon paper to the sensor. This is to mark where the steal ball lands on the sensor and to measure the distances of where the ball lands in each part of the experiment. The final lab member is monitoring the computer where
