Unformatted text preview: Ethan Martinez [email protected] 10/15/09 Range Lab Abstract: In the lab the range equation and the equation for the path of the projectile will be compared to the experimental points that were tested for in the experiment. Introduction: The lab is divided into two parts. The first part is to find the velocity of the different speed settings for the marble launcher. The second part is to find the range of the marble launcher with a constant speed setting and different angles, then a constant angle and different speed settings. After deriving the time independent equation from the range equation and the velocity function, and the equation for the path of a projectile from the motions of the x and y directions, a comparison is made between the experimental points and the two theoretical points. The comparison will verify the two equations for the range of a projectile. Procedure/Setup: Derive the two equations, the time independent equation from the range equation and the velocity function, and the equation for the path of a projectile from the motions of the x and y directions. Then find the original velocity for the marble by setting the marble the x and y directions....
