1. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this lab was to use a motion sensor (photogates), computer software  application, projectile launcher, and time of flight pad to investigate what factors may  affect the time-of flight of a projectile. We would then use our graphical data produced  by the computer software to make comparisons between our data received by our time- of-flight experiment versus our horizontal velocity of a projectile experiment.  2. EQUIPMENTS Item Role Motion Sensors (Two  Photogates) Detects and records the motion of projectile object Data Studio Software  Application This software application charts, displays, and  scores the accuracy of each experiment. Projectile Launcher, with adjustable angle positioning Propelled the object (horizontal position = 0°). Time of Flight Pad A flat sensored surface that measures the time  the projectile object reaches its final destination  Projectile A ping-pong ball Projectile Inserter Rod Helped push the projectile into the launcher Metric Ruler To measure distance away from launcher Stand Used to position the time-of-flight pad in a vertical  position PHY 2053 Lab Page 2 of 11 Unit 1

3. PROCEDURE The lab was divided in to two experiments.  The first, titled Time of Flight, required that we used the DataStudio file “13A Proj Motion  1” which recorded the average velocity of the projectile between the two photogates
