Unknown source in the room parallax error material

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

unknown source in the room, parallax error, material properties of the projectile or wear-and-tear over time from other lab setups, and/or faulty measurement instruments. Having accurately reading measurement instruments and taking time to precisely report accurate measurements would improve the experiment thus reducing error. The motion of projectile follows either horizontally then gradually curving down (Part I) or curving upward then reaching an apex then curving downward (Part II). The curving is a result from acceleration due to gravity. The shape of the projectile’s path follows a parabolic motion.

Conclusion Horizontal and vertical motion are independent of each other. The velocity in the x-direction is constant because there is no acceleration acting on a projectile in that motion. Acceleration due to gravity affects how the projectile moves in the y-direction, its distance from its origin from the x-direction, and the time it reaches the ground. Inclined angles affect the projectile’s distance and time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
