Physics 310 Experiment 5 Projectile motion DATA SHEET Name: Bill Zacharias Date: 03-22-2010 1. Paste the V y -time plot with fit for the lacrosse ball below. 2. What is the value of the vertical acceleration of the lacrosse ball? -12.8 m/s^2 3. Compare this value with the expected value of – g. It is 3 m/s^2 more than g. 4. Paste the V y -time plot with fit for the balloon below. Phys310 Lab Page 1 Experiment 5

Phys310 Lab Page 4 Experiment 5 Physics 310 Experiment 5 continued 11.What is the horizontal acceleration? 1.1 m/s^2 12.What is a possible explanation for the horizontal velocity-time graph? Inconsistent selection of mass points plotted 13.What is the value of Vy when the basketball is at its highest point? 0 m/s 14.Does the slope of the Vy-time graph change at that point? No, it does not. 15.What does your answer to question 11 imply about the acceleration of the basketball when it is at the highest point in its trajectory? It is constant and nonzero for the vertical and should be close to zero for the horizontal, but could have some force acting on it due to the wind. Phys310 Lab Page 5 Experiment 5...
