Unformatted text preview: PART III - ANALYSIS 1. Should you expect any numerical prediction based on experimental measurements to be exact? Would a range of values for the prediction be more appropriate? Explain. PHYS 15200 Mechanics IUPUI Physics Department Lab02: Projectile Motion Page 3 of 3 2. Was your actual impact point between your minimum and maximum impact predictions? If so, your prediction was successful. 3. You accounted for variations in the velocity measurement in your range prediction. Are there other measurements you used which affect the range prediction? What are they? 4. Did you account for air resistance in your prediction? If so, how? If not, how would air resistance change the distance the ball flies?...
