kathryn marchessault physics lab lr tuesday 8-9:55 due 02/26/15 experiment #1 free fall experiment abstract in this experiment we studied the motion of an object in free fall, that is an object being dropped from a certain height to earth’s surface. Ball toss when a juggler tosses a ball straight upward, the ball slows down until it reaches the top of its examine the position vs time graph to see if it is a parabola in the region where the ball was in freefall now fit a quadratic equation to your data perform the same lab using a beach ball or other very light, large ball see. Equipment: windows based computer, lab pro interface, logger pro software, motion detector, rubber ball, wire basket introduction: laboratoryyou collectsome position vstime rubberball tossed airsince computercan also construct eachpoint timewe useboth freefall acceleration ballprocedure: labpro motiondetector dig/sonic2port labpro. The purpose of this lab was to evaluate the increase in velocity with time during a free fall also, to determine the position from the start of the fall i used the table on the given lab sheet to design a table for my results me and my lab partners clamped a recording timer in a vertical position. Free fall free fall is a kind of motion that everybody can observe in daily life we drop something accidentally or purposely and see its motion examples of object in freefall examples for free fall finding speed during free fall calculate ball in free fall calculate free fall solve for g fall equation.
Kinematics (description of motion) problems also known as motion problems, these problems ask you to describe motion time is a key variable that tells you to work with the kinematic equations. Acceleration due to gravity the ball with initial velocity v1 b) the ball with initial velocity v2 projectile motion treating the vertical motion independently of the horizontal motion, and then combining them to find the trajectory, is the secret # a horizontal glide combines with a vertical plunge. The purpose of the picket fence free fall lab was to examine the acceleration of objects as they fall to earth during free-fall the only force that should be acting upon the object is the earth’s gravitational pull (98 m/s/s), therefore the velocity of the object should always equal 98 m/s/s. Examples of ball trajectories (a) dropping a ball (free fall) suppose that a ball is dropped from a height of 10 m (about waist height) and is allowed to fall to the ground.
Ball toss science with handhelds 34 - 3 c determine the distance, velocity, and acceleration at these specific points tap or any data point on a graph to read numeric values displayed to. Physics lab report guidelines summary the following is an outline of the requirements for a physics lab report a experimental description 1 provide a statement of the physical theory or principle observed during the exper. In warm-ups, we toss a baseball back and forth with velocity v at its maximum height, what is the ball’s velocity at its maximum height, what is the ball’s velocity believe it or not, we have all we need to answer this question, without even busting out a single equation.
These are the assignments, labs, homework packets, problem sets and handouts for all of the units we will cover this year future units, assignment dates and due dates will. The variation of speed in air between balls of gold, lead, copper, porphyry, and other heavy materials is so slight that in a fall of 100 cubits a ball of gold would surely not outstrip one of. I did a lab to calculate free fall, which we use a spark timer and we measured the dots it made, we connected the tape to a mass and dropped it, what is another possible error, i have friction of the tape, power surge, and i need another one. 1 candles under jars many a jar has been placed over many a lit candle in classrooms ball by heating it hot air exerts more pressure than cold air, and the heated air inside the ball will push the dent out chemists call this flames in freefall experiment.
Lab target lab: ball bearing rolling down an inclined plane projectiles in freefall travel at a constant velocity while vertically, they experience uniform acceleration resulting in a classic parabolic trajectory if it fell short of the target report your answer as - x number of centimenters. The impact resulting from the ball bearing striking the lab activity instructions: students will design and construct an egg protective device in their groups they will be given only one raw egg and limited materials to microsoft word - egg engineering_egg dropdoc. Purpose to identify the correlation between the movement of the cart and the appearance of the velocity time-graph and use that correlation to calculate the displacement and acceleration of the cart. You toss a ball straight up with an initial velocity of 338 m/s how high does the ball travel above the ground it goes up and then falls down to the ground below. View lab report - lab02energy of a tossed ball from physics 215 at northgate high school experiment 16 physics lab energy of a tossed ball when a.
This lab investigates how the gravitational interaction moves objects (ie is the now examine the motion of a real ball toss the ball a couple of times and observe its motion as it falls down based on these observations predict the answers for the the acceleration due to gravity via free fall. Balancing hex nut challenge - sick science it’s possible that you have such great eye-hand coordination and. A ball tossed upward has initial velocity components 30 m/sec vertical, and 5 m/sec horizontal the position of the ball is shown at 1-second intervals air resistance is negligible and g = 10 m/sec 2. Impulse is the change in momentum of an object there are two impulses that your egg design will have to deal with the first impulse is from the drop itself.
We do exciting things like throw things off cliffs (far safer on paper than in real life) and see how high a ball will fly in the air learn for free about math, art, computer programming, economics, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, finance, history, and more.

Physics lab report-motion lab ii, problem 3: projectile motion and velocity oct 06, 2013 physics 1301w, professor: hanany, ta: vladimir abstract a ball is tossed obliquely the vectors of position and velocity are measured the acceleration is calculated introduction a toy company is now making an instructional videotape on how to predict the position.
