EXPERIMENT 10. BALLISTIC PENDULUM paper. Repeat 10 times. If you have properly calculated your uncertainty 7 out of the 10 trials should hit between the lines. Figure 10.2: Projectile motion from the cannon 7. Does the value of the range calculated using your measured value for v 0 agree with the observed range? 8. Finally, compute the percentage of the balls initial kinetic energy that was lost when the ball collided with the pendulum arm. Report In addition to the standard elements of a well written lab report described in the introduction

Unformatted text preview: to this manual, your report must include: 1. A neat and organized presentation of all measured and calculated values. 2. A calculation of the percent uncertainty in the calculated range and the measured range of the projectile. How many of your shots landed within the uncertainty range? What can you conclude from this? 3. A final comment on whether or not mechanical energy was conserved. If not, is that what you would expect in this type of a collision? 67...
