Abstract:
This lab experiment was to understand projectile motion and determine the maximum range .
Equations were provide
1.How do your results from Part I of the laboratory support or contradict Newtons proposition
that an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by a non-zero net force? How did you
distinguish between rounding error and any real difference in y
1.What effect does N have on accurately determining the value of the period? What
considerations keep one from allowing N to be very large, for example 1000?
When determining the value of the period with a stopwatch, the only potential for error is
due to
1.How do you handle cases in which the initial and final heights are different? How is the
quadratic formula used to solve these kinds of problems? Be explicit in your description.

1.One of the conditions for Uniform Circular Motion is that the acceleration be centripetal and
directed toward the center of motion. What would the effect be of a non-zero acceleration
parallel to the tangential velocity?
Uniform circular motion (UCM) is
1.What is the relationship between work and kinetic energy for a horizontal force and
displacement?
In any system, the net work performed on an object is equal to the change in kinetic
energy (KE) of that object (Nave, 2012). This can be shown using the e
1.What differences did you notice in measured value of frequency and that displayed in the
simulation controls?
The value of frequency in the simulation compared to that calculated by manually timing the
waves is wildly different. The simulation value has

weight of the object, and to the weight of the water displaced by the floating object?
The fluid displaced by an object is determined by its volume and mass, or den

energies? Is it possible to have particles with kinetic energies many multiples of the most
common value?
Temperature can be defined as the measure of the average
