We repeated the procedure 4 times each for 5 different distances from the board to the point of launch of the ball. (VI 2) I then plotted a graph h/D vs. D and included the value of tan θ as the intercept H θ y = 0.021x - 0.572 -0.8 -0.6 -0.4 -0.2 0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1 1.2 0 20 40 60 80 Experiment to determine launch speed Date Linear (Date)

Unformatted text preview: the slope and the intercept (VI 5) Then I calculated the value of v o using the slope of the graph The values obtained by the 2 methods are significantly different from each other. There may be a number of reasons for this including Air resistance Errors in obtaining the data, especially finding the correct point where the ball stuck the sensing paper = 369460 7 52780 v = 229.7389823 cm/s^-1 = 0.021 (from graph) (VI 4) Then I calculated the value of v o using the slope of the graph σv = v * ^ 2 + ^ 2 ^ 0.5 cm/s^-1 v ^2 = 10*g*S = 10*980*37.7 7 7 30827.49813 v = 175.5776128 = 980 2*0.021*(0.87^2) 980 0.0317898 = 2*(slope)*cos^2° g 2*(v ^2)*cos^2° Slope = g v ^2 = a sadf a gwaegaweg awegweg...
