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 experiement error = | known value experimental value known value | × 100 error = | 0.572 0.590 0.572 | × 100 error = 3.15 CONCLUSIONS After completing the experiment and finalizing our calculations, we can now calculate and estimate where a ball rolling off an edge will go. Though, in our final conclusions, my lab partners 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 in order to get a larger range for our ball to fall within. Also, we can use a flat board instead of a tube because maybe our ball did not roll in a completely straight line. Physics with Computers 4 - 5
