Interstellar
Interstellar is a sci-fi movie based on science. The movie is about few astronauts
that are travelling through a wormhole in order to reach to a different galaxy and to find a
Experiment 2: Acceleration Due To Gravity
Dr. De Haui Chen
Purpose
The purpose of this lab was to measure the acceleration of an object that is
falling while assuming there is no other force acting on it beside gravitational force.
Theory
An object is dro
Experiment 3: Projectile Motion
Purpose
The purpose of this experiment was to observe the different flight ranges and flight
times of a ball launched at different angles with a certain initial velocity.
Theory
Projectile motion is a type of motion where a
