Unformatted text preview: reasonably taken to get a good account of the ball’s projectile motion statistics. Using the computer program and averages, the calculated range was 1.59 ± 0.036 meters and the calculated time of flight was 0.49 ± 0.004 seconds for the 0° launch angle. The calculated range was 1.98 ± 0.097 meters with a calculated time of flight at 0.49 ± 0.051 seconds for the 25° launch angle. Possible source of error includes air resistance against the ball, since we did not regulate the amount of air flowing throughout the classroom.
