Unformatted text preview: Alizabeth Madison Lab Activity # 2 SC140 Purpose and Procedures: The purpose of the activity was to use video and analysis techniques to describe the motion of a projectile, a metal ball, in flight. We were to launch the metal ball at four different angles. One being horizontal to the table, and the others were to be any angle we chose. We also had to predict which angle would launch the ball the farthest. To do this we had to set up the experiment in such a way that the barrel of the launcher would launch the ball to an open patch of flooring. Data Analysis: Before we were able to start collecting the data from our videos, we had to set a length-scale that we would be able to recognize without measuring it on the screen. For this experiment, we decided to use yard sticks. This allowed to also see just how far the metal ball was bouncing once it hit the table. The yard stick also served a purpose of setting up an xy-plane for measuring the position of the metal ball....
