LAB 111 Mehar Ghei LABORATORY EXPERIMENT REPORT Name: Mehar Ghei Group Members: Nicole Tran, Yvunne Chen, Nakib Junayed Experiment Date: Tuesday, September 21, 2010 Course Name: PHYS 111A Section: H01 Instructor: Beidi He LABORATORY #111 Projectile Motion 1. OBJECTIVE To predict, through calculations, where a target of a known size should be placed in order to be hit by a projectile in a horizontal direction. To measure the range of a projectile leaving the table at a known angle and additionally predict where the projectile will land on the floor. 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND In the x direction, V o is constant and therefore, a x =0 In the y direction, a y = g = 9.8 m/s 2 In a scenario where the projectile has no angle, the height, y, can be calculated by, = y 12gt2 And the horizontal distance, x, from, = x vot In a scenario where the projectile is going through a target, one must also consider the height of the target, H, in addition to the height of the table, y. - =
