Objective

The objective of the lab is to find an angle that, when launched, will travel a certain distance (in this

case 2m).

Background

Before beginning the experiment, the initial velocity was solved for using the equation Vyo=√(2g(y-

y2)), (with Vyo being the velocity of the projectile, y and y2 being the time, and g being gravity) in

order to determine the speed of the projectile. After finding the speed, using the equation (sin^-1((Δxg)/

Vyo^2))/2, we can find the angle that can be used to travel the exact distance needed. In the lab, the

acceleration of gravity is constant. It is also known that the distance needed to travel is 2m and the

velocity after launching the projectile is 0 m/s.

Procedure

First, a paper projectile is made and shot in the air using a rubber band several times. These times are

used to find the distance, or force, the rubber band is pushed back in order to reach the closest distance

possible to 2m. Once the equations (found in Background) are solved and the angle needed to shoot the

projectile is found, you aim at the target 2m using the amount of force found in the previous step and

using the angle from the ground to the projectile.

Analysis

Using the equation Vyo=√ (2g(y-y2)), we were able to find the velocity, or speed, of the projectile

while its traveling 2m. This allowed us to use the other equation, (sin^-1((Δxg)/ Vyo^2))/2, to find the

angle needed to reach exactly 2m. As it can be seen in the results, most angles found and solved by the

groups that came near the target were between 15° and 20°.

Conclusion

In conclusion, after using the equations (found in Background) to find the initial velocity followed by

the angle, we were able to either shoot directly at the target or near it. Two possible types of angles that

could be used to fire the projectile are a small angle and a large angle. These results can help us when

throwing objects, such as a football or a water balloon. We understand that an object will never go in a

straight line due to gravity pulling it to the center of the earth (or the ground). As a result, we have to

find the velocity or speed the object will travel and by using the above equation to find the angle in

order to hit a target precisely. However, errors in the throwing or shooting of the projectiles could be

not measuring it precisely, air resistance, objects (such as the person’s hands in this lab) in the way of

the projectile, not using the exact pull or force of the rubber band to fire, and finally the projectile not

reaching exactly 2m in the practice shots.
