    Freefall and Projectile Motion Introduction and Objectives This lab experiment was done to determine the characteristics of free fall and projectile motion in Physics. The motion in which a body is thrown or projected is called Projectile motion while free fall is any motion of a body where gravity is the only force acting upon it, at least initially. In this experiment, a photogate, a chopper, and a Universal Lab Interface were used to determine the free fall motion of the chopper as it was

    The purpose of this lab was to examine projectile motion and how the horizontal motion is independent of the vertical motion. Data was used to calculate gravity given that the vertical acceleration was only due to g. The data was collected by sending a ball down a ramp that had a horizontal end. At the end of the ramp there was a monitor that recorded the velocity of the ball as left the ramp. Carbon paper was laid on the ground where the ball landed; the spot that was left behind was measured from

  • Analyzing Projectile Motion For An Object That Was Launched Horizontally And At An Angle Essay

    1600 Words  | 7 Pages

    Objective The purpose of this experiment was to analyze projectile motion for an object that was launched horizontally and at an angle, and is impacted by gravity and air friction. The study looked at two different scenarios: Varying the range of the launcher that fires a projectile horizontally and how it impacted the time-of-flight: The ranges were short range, medium range, and long range. Varying the range of the launcher as well as the angle of launch and how it impacted the range: The

    transfer of energy, heat engines, and projectile motion. (The Physics of Shooting a Gun, n.d.) History Of Firearms The history of firearms begins in China in the ninth century where, huo yao, the world’s first gun powder was discovered; it was created by mixing charcoal, potassium nitrate and sulphur into a fine powder. Historians are prone to recognizing tenth century Chinese fire lances, a spear-like weapon combining a bamboo tube containing huo yao and projectiles tied to a Chinese spear as the first

    came in the motions of throwing rocks. After more dignified methods came about, with weapons such as the bow and arrow and the boomerang. Now that time has progressed since then so also has science has also evolved into larger fields helping advance life and the work we do within it. . Ballistics now is used to help improve the usage of bullets, bombs and rockets launching. It is the study of mechanics that deals in the science of launching, flight motions and the behavior of projectiles The filed

  • The Slingshot Is A Weapon Used By People For Generations

    1624 Words  | 7 Pages

    Chris Walker Martha Kinsler Chemistry Honors 28 November 2015 Background Research. The slingshot is a weapon used by people for generations. It was originally just a strapped sling used to propel rocks. It usually was used as a lightweight hunting weapon and sometimes for defense (Yoder.) People had used it by rapidly spinning the string and letting it go, sending the rock flying at high speeds. It wasn’t until the mid-1800 's that the traditional slingshot we all know of today came into play

  • Ballistics Reflection Essay

    Starting from the beginning of the year, I understand what I did wrong on the Engineering Presentation. Where I am a little disappointed is where for example, on the 4.2 Linear Motion homework, you gave me a C+ and out of the whole assignment you only crossed out the word "usually". Also, on the 4.2.2 Projectile Motion homework, you gave me an F because I read one of the questions wrong even though I had written the correct answer on the paper and I wrote down for the third question 1) Initial Velocity

  • Physics of Firearms Essay

    620 Words  | 3 Pages

    Although many people may have shot a firearm of some sort, few of those people actually realize how much physics is involved with the shot. So what exactly is Ballistics? Ballistics is the science or study of the motion of projectiles and in the case of most firearms, these projectiles are the bullets. There are two things that affect the flight of a bullet once it has been shot out of the gun. These things are the drag of air on the bullet and the force of gravity acting upon the bullet. The
