Station Check: ﬁﬁézsis [\“Zéféo’ FIRE 0N MEDIUM RANGE ONLY 39 Lab 5: Projectile Motion Exercises and Questions 1. Insert your data into the provided Excel Spreadsheet. Shovif'yOur TA”your“"”ﬁphs. Once approved, print the graphs for both you and your lab partner. Use a proper slope technique to ﬁne the slope of the line of best ﬁt. Show the slope calculation on the graph. (10 pts) The position vs. time graphs are graphical representations of the observed motion of the plastic ball in air. Analyze the behavior of the slope of the position vs. time graphs and write descriptions of the motion and changes in the motion represented by the graphs. a. The descriptions should emphasize the overall features of the position vs. time graphs, not small variations in the graphs. b. The descriptions should include the direction of motion; Whether the ball moves in a particular direction with (nearly) constant velocity and no acceleration; or Whether the motion of the ball in a particular direction is (signiﬁcantly) accelerated and, if so, how does the ball accelerate (e.g., speeds up, slows down, and/or changes direction). The grade assigned to the graphical analysis of the horizontal and vertical motion of the plastic ball in air is based on the thoroughness of the analysis. The grade: assigned to the descriptions of the motion is based on the completeness of the descriptions and the use of kinematic concepts and vocabulary.

Analyze the behavior of the velocity vs. time graph and the behavior of the slope of the graph. Describe the motion of a particle represented by the velocity vs. time graph and any changes in the motion. a. The description should emphasize the overall features of the velocity vs. time graph, not small variations in the plotted data. b. The description should include the direction of motion; whether the particle moves with (nearly) constant vertical velocity (constant speed and no change in direction) and no acceleration or whether the particle accelerates in some manner (increasing speed, decreasing speed, or changing direction) and, if so, Whether the acceleration is (nearly) constant (e. g., speed changes at a constant rate). The grade assigned to the graphical analysis of the vertical motion of the plastic ball in air is based on the thoroughness of the analysis. The grade assigned to the descriptions of the motion is based on the completeness of the descriptions and the use of kinematic concepts and vocabulary.
