4. Did you account for air resistance in your prediction? If so, how? If not, how would air resistancechange the distance the ball flies?
5. Calculate the percent error of this experiementerror=|known value−experimental valueknown value|×100error=|0.572−0.5900.572|×100error=3.15CONCLUSIONSAfter completing the experiment and finalizing our calculations, we can now calculate andestimate where a ball rolling off an edge will go. Though, in our final conclusions, my labpartners and I found that our ball did not fall within the given range (as referenced in Table 2),as a result of our range being extremely small.In order to fix this issue and any others, we can use more or fewer rolls in our calculations inorder to get a larger range for our ball to fall within. Also, we can use a flat board instead of atube because maybe our ball did not roll in a completely straight line.Physics with Computers4 - 5
