horizontal direction. Measure the distances y and x. For x, make the measurement for all the 5 launchings and take the average. Always measure from the mark (“Launch Position of Ball”). Record data in Data Table I. 3. Using y and the average x, calculate 4. Measure the height H above the floor from the center of the hole of the ring target. 5. Calculate the distance D where the target should be placed for the ball to pass through the hole. Clearly show your calculations.

6. Release the ball from the same loading position at the Mini Launcher, measure the distance D where the ball actually passes through the hole. 7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 for a different height of the hole of the ring target. 8. For each height of the hole of the ring target, record the results in Data Table II. Part II. Projectile Motion in an Angle relative to Horizontal 1. Place the counter tray upside down on top of the table. 2. Adjust the angle of inclination to be certain angle . Adjust the height of the Mini Launcher to make sure the mark (“Launch Position of the Ball”) at exact same height as the tray. 3. Place a carbon paper on top of the tray. Release the ball from Launcher and let it hit the tray. Launch the ball for 5 times. Measure the horizontal range R for all the 5 launchings and take the average. Always measure form the mark (“Launch Positions of Ball”). 4. Using , R and y=0, calculate 5. Record data in Data Table III. 6. Measure the height above the floor H to the release the point of projection. 7. Using , and y= -H, and , calculate the distance D where the projectile will strike the floor. Show your calculation on a separate calculation sheet. 8. Release the ball from the same loading position at the Launcher. Measure the distance D where the projectile strikes the floor (using carbon paper).

    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.
