Unformatted text preview: leave the track with an initial velocity and land on a piece of paper. Using conservation of energy you will predict the velocity with which it emerges from the track. Using measurements of the horizontal distance travelled and the kinematic equations, you will determine the actual speed with which it emerged. You will use energy to determine the work done by friction on the projectile. Physics 1050 Experiment 4 Part II: Set up Assemble your apparatus as shown. Insert the sheet of carbon paper between two sheets of paper (inky side down) and slide the sheets under the wooden stand. Secure your paper to the desktop and mark the position of the edge of the stand. The track is horizontal at the bottom. Physics 1050 Experiment 4 Part II: Set up Initial measurements Measure the height H of the top of the track relative to the table. Measure the...
