an angle Θ.
Theory:
Two equations can describe the projectile motion. Θ is the angle of the initial
velocity above the horizontal V
o
(m/s) is the initial speed of the ball, t(s) is the
flight time of the ball from shot off to hit the floor, and x(m) is the flight
range, i.e., the horizontal distance from the release point to the landing point
on the floor.
To get the information needed to complete this experiment we ran five trials
at each angle (0
