Impulse-Momentum of a Bouncing Ball
The purpose of this lab is to find the velocity of the ball before it hits the ground, and thevelocity after it bounces and the impulse when it hits the ground. In addition, to compare the mostconstant from the different drop points,.
I think that the velocities will bedependent on each other in order to find the amount of energy lost.
We used a ping pong ball and a ruler dropped it at a height of 1meter. We used the equations:,
To start off, we found an equation that will allow us to find the velocity of the ping pong ball before ithits the ground, the velocity after it bounces and the energy lost during the procedure (V
Then, we dropped the ping pong ball from a height of 1 meter. Lastly, measured how high the ball bounced back up. Then we used the equation that was relative to find our objectives.
