Question 2: Scenario 1 Scenario 2 Scenario 3 Range 1.0597 m 1.089 m .249 m Max Height .714 m 1.234 m .895 m The height is highest when the angle of take off is greatest (above 45 degress). This sets the trajectory to go the highest. Where as when the angle was less than 45 degrees, the height was significantly lower than in the first two scenarios. Therefore, it can be said that the max height is correlated to the take off angle. Yet, the equation shows that the max height depends on not only gravity, and the starting height, but also the velocity in the y direction and the angle of take off. Yet, the best predictor seems to be take-off angle, but also seems to also be related to the velocity in the y direction as well. Where as, range is determined primarily by the velocity in the x direction. Question 3: See figure 1. Question 4: I tried to manipulate my time variables to make more sense in terms of real life. However, I do think that in

Unformatted text preview: real life Scenario 2 would have a shorter ranger than in scenario 1. This would be because more energy was directed in the Y direction rather than the X direction. But the time of flight could change this prediction. Because simply put, the longer hang time a person can get in the air, the farther distance they can travel. Also, a determinate that we did not measure was the force with which the person leaves the ground. How hard you push into the floor, could relate to how much spring a person gets into the air which would affect both the max height and the range. Yet, if everything (forces and time) is the same it will depend on the take off angle and whether or not the velocity in the y direction is higher than the x or vice versa.
