Horizontal Projectile

Students will use a simple method, employing just a meter stick and stopwatch, to determine the initial velocity of a horizontal projectile. They will then predict the range of the projectile, precisely measure the actual range by using carbon paper,...

Range of a Horizontal Projectile: Advanced

Students will use a photogate to measure the launch velocity of a horizontal projectile. That velocity will be used to predict the projectile's range, or horizontal displacement. Students are guided through the exact steps and equations they will need for...
