values. Meter sticks were used to measure the displacement in the X and Y axes. To gain more accurate results, Carbon paper was used as a way to create a clear mark on where the ball landed from the projectile launcher. These materials are instrumental in collecting data for the experimental analysis. To collect accurate data, the projectile launcher was fired in order to identify where the carbon paper should be placed. Once the carbon paper and printer paper were placed, the launcher was fired five more times in order to get a general horizontal distance that the ball traveled. The carbon paper’s ability to mark where the ball landed allowed for the average distance of travel to be marked and measured using the meter sticks. The measurements in this part of the experiment would be used to calculate time and velocity of flight. For the second part of the experiment, the launch angle would be changed, but the other portions of the experiment would remain the same. The exception to this is that the distance would be calculated mathematically, and then measured physically to compare the two values. The difference between these two values is the air resistance of the physical experiment.

    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.
