Introduction: For part I we were looking to find where to place the target in order to get the ball into the target. For part II we had to measure the distance of the projectile at a certain angle. After we record the range, then we decide where to place the target so that the projectile will go into the target. In the x-direction, the acceleration is a x = 0, because the velocity is constant. In the y direction acceleration a y = g in the downwards direction. G is considered gravity, which is -9.81 m/s2. The two equations used in this lab are y= ½ gt^2 and x= v 0 t. Experimental Procedure: Part I 1. In order to do this part of the lab it is important that you have a target, carbon paper, a small silver ball, a projectile machine, a paper, a meter stick, and a calculator. 2. Set the projectile up at the edge of the table, it should be clear from any obstructions. Afterwards set the paper and a clear distance away in order to record
