    Projectile Motion Lab Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to find how changing the angle and velocity would affect the distance the object went, height the object went, and time the object was in the air. Before this lab I could not tell how the angle and velocity would change the results. I needed to figure out what angle and what velocity made the object go farther or make it stay in the air longer. I also found mass will affect the height and distance. I used the site Galileo and

    There are many concepts in shooting including arc, backspin, projectile motion and trajectory. For my science project I was interested in learning if shooting from different starting places made a person more likely to make a shot. I think the most crucial element of a shot is arc. It is important for a person to have a medium arc. If their arc is to flat or to high it will be very challenging for them to score. Without a good arc players would not nearly score as much. One of the most important

    Investigating Free-falling Objects and Projectile Motions Aim: The aim of my experiment is to obtain results/ data and see whether a pattern can be distinguished or whether my data agrees with a theory or law. I'm going to try to undergo two investigations using the same apparatus, and look at the outcome of my results and see whether a firm conclusion can be made. For the two investigations, I'm going to look at free-falling objects and projectile motions: Investigation 1: Isaac Newton

    basketball. Whether jumping for the ball, or leaping for a slam dunk, the human body follows the same laws of projectile motion as do other objects. The sport that includes shooting, passing, running, and dribbling involves topics covered in physics such as force, friction, effects of air resistance, velocity, air pressure and energy. Basketball also involves factors such as projectile motion in making a basket, gravity and its effects on passing and dribbling, and Newton’s First and Third Law on passing

    Examining Projectile Motion Introduction When I was younger, I’d always worry about not being able to reach an object or be able to score a goal in sports. Especially because of my short height, I’d have to find creative ways in order to achieve these things. Projectile motion is just a fancy way of describing the efforts I had to go through in order to throw a basketball into the hoop at a certain height, or hit a golf ball at a certain angle in order to aim it. Projectile motion is used in our

    In this term paper, I will be relating projectile motion to personal experiences, movies, TV show, and Previous knowledge. In the first Unit of class we talked about motion in one dimension, but in this unit we talked about motion two dimensional. One example of a two dimensional motion is projectile motion. Projectile motion is when an object has an initial force that is applied to it to begin its motion. After the object starts its motion there is no longer a force that is being applied. At this

    Introduction Projectile motion is key component in everyday life. Whether it’s a football player kicking the ball to score a winning field goal or a frustrated student crumpling up a piece of paper and tossing it into the trash can, projectile motion is all arounds us. The idea of projectile motion was taught to us by varying physicists like Aristotle and Galileo. Using Aristotle's original notion that shot objects stay along a straight path until its impetus is lost, the famous physicist Galileo

    Angular projectile motion is used to calculate how far an object with an initial velocity that is projected at an angle to the horizontal will travel horizontally. It can also be used to calculate the maximum height reached by the object and how long it was in the air for. When solving angular projectile motion problems, one must consider the following steps. To begin with one must calculate the horizontal acceleration of the object, keeping in mind that the vertical acceleration is 9.8 m/s2 due
