John Salek-Raham Physics 151 10/16/07 Lab M4 Projectile Motion : VI: Raw data from the laboratory procedure is attached on the Data sheet. Using the apparatus provided, 4 drops of the ball from the same starting height were made and measured for different d. D (cm) d1 (cm) d2 (cm) d3 (cm) d4 (cm) d + Sigma d (cm) H – d (cm) h/D + sigma d / D (cm) 73.8 22.8 24.6 25.7 26.9 25.0 + 1.7 78.8 1.07 + 0.02 66.8 45.3 43.7 43.9 44.0 44.2 + 0.7 59.6 0.89 + 0.01 60.8 54.9 56.3 58.8 59.4 57.4 + 2.1 46.5 0.76 + 0.03 55.0 68.4 69.5 69.5 70.3 69.4 + 0.8 34.4 0.63 + 0.01 46.2 81.5 82.0 82.5 83.5 82.4 + 0.9 21.4 0.46 + 0.20 36.6 95.9 96.0 96.0 96.4 96.1 + 0.2 7.7 0.21 + 0.01 Using this data, the following graph was constructed: The slope was found to be 0.023 with an uncertainty of 0.0005. The intercept was found to be -0.61 with an uncertainty of 0.029.
