3.14: To make this prediction, the student needs the ball’s horizontal velocity at the moment it leaves the tabletop and the time it will take for the ball to reach the floor (or rather, the rim of the cup). The latter can be determined simply by measuring the height of the tabletop above the rim of the cup and using 2 2 1 gt y = to calculate the falling time. The horizontal velocity can be determined (although with significant uncertainty) by timing the ball’s roll for a measured distance before it leaves the table, assuming that its

Unformatted text preview: speed doesn’t change much on the hard tabletop. The horizontal distance traveled while the ball is in flight will simply be horizontal velocity × falling time. The cup should be placed at this distance (or a slightly shorter distance, to allow for the slowing of the ball on the tabletop and to make sure it clears the rim of the cup) from a point vertically below the edge of the table....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
