Lab 4: Energy of a Bouncing Ball

I-Objective

:
The purpose of this lab is to find the velocity of the ping pong ball before it hits the ground,the velocity after it bounces and the energy lost during the procedure (V
2
, V
3
, E
lost).
I think that if thevelocities will be dependent on each other in order to find the amount of energy lost.
II-Background:

In order to do this lab we used a ping pong ball and a ruler. We dropped it at a height of 1 meter. Weused the equations: ,
III-Procedure:
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
2
, V
3
, E
lost).
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.
IV
- Results and Calculations
Based on the calculations below the mass of the ball is .003kg and the height that the ball bounced back up was .66 meters.
