IUPUI PHYS 15200 Page 1 of 1 Pre-Lab02: PROJECTILE MOTION Name Due at the beginning of the lab period Consider a particle launched at a horizontal velocity v 0 from a height h above the ground. 1. Derive an expression for the time it takes the projectile to strike the ground. Ignore air resistance. 2. Derive an expression for the maximum horizontal distance (“range”) travelled by the projectile. Ignore air resistance. Let’s include the effect of constant air resistance on the projectile: the acceleration of the particle

Unformatted text preview: is now given by a = g i g j , where g = 9.8 m/s 2 and is a very small non-negative constant ( &lt;&lt; 1). 3. Derive an expression for the time it takes the projectile to strike the ground given constant air resistance. 4. Show that difference between the range R in the absence of air resistance and the range R * in the presence of constant air resistance is given by R R * = h , where h is the initial height of the projectile in both cases....
