Bouncing Performed by Sarin Regmi Date: 8 th October 2009 TA: Brian Howard. Object of the problem The object of our problem was to find out how the ratio of horizontal distance covered by two successive bounces relates to the ratio of the horizontal component of initial velocity and the height of two bounces when a ball is dropped from a certain height. We dropped a ball from a certain height, took the videos of the two projectile motions traced by it and used the video analysis to find the range, height and initial velocity of ball in each case and hence the required ratio. Prediction We started from the mathematical definition of acceleration, And integrated it twice with respect to time to see how the position depends upon the change in acceleration and time. We found, 2 (1) We assumed the upward direction to be positive and defined it to be the y-axis, and the horizontal plane to be the x-axis. If T represents the total time of the flight, v the initial velocity and θ the angle velocity
