Unformatted text preview: shape in the downward direction since a ball will drop due to gravity when released. It is the exact motion we are looking for in a projectile experiment. We found the height to be 4.375. So we could find our constant B value to be equal to 0.08. By solving the equation B=(7/20)*h. My theoretic value of B was 0.08 while in reality it was equal to 0.1183. That is a pretty close comparison due to the fact that there will always be a little bit of error in every experiment you can create. In conclusion, the experiment was off by a little less than a factor of 2. The path of the ball dropping is a good representation of how gravity affects everything in real life situations....
