Find the graphical and mathematical representation of an object shot from a slingshot.
See attached paper for apparatus.
1. Gather a slingshot, ball, tape, measure tool, table, scale, stopwatch, protractor on a table
2. Keep the slingshot from moving around on the table by applying tape
3. Put the ball on the slingshot and measure the distance it is pulled back and keep the distance consistent
4. Measure the weight of ball in kilometers
5. Measure the angle of the launch (independent)
6. Launch the ball using the slingshot while measuring the time in seconds (dependent)
7. Measure how far the ball traveled horizontally in meters(dependent)
8. Repeat steps 5-7 for 6 trials
See attached paper for graphs, motion maps, interaction schemes, force diagram.
The horizontal and vertical velocities and displacement are independent of each other. To reach a maximum vertical displacement, a 90° angle of launch must be used. To reach a maximum horizontal displacement, a 45° angle of launch must be used. To reach a maximum time of flight, a 45° and 90° angle of launch must be used.
Horizontal displacement vs. initial horizontal velocity
The y-intercept is initial velocity of the ball. The slope is acceleration of the ball.
Equation: Velocity (m/s) = 0.06 (s 2) Dis (m) 2 – 0.26 (s) Dis (m) + 2.30 Vel (m/s)
Initial vertical velocity vs. time of flight
The experiment was interesting, but very confusing. We were unable to calculate the initial vertical velocity of the ball at a 90° angle of launch. Because of this one of graphs, along with its supplement data were not calculated. But we still learned many things about projectiles from this project. We learned that the horizontal and vertical displacement and velocities are independent of each other. We also learned that 45° angle of launch will give you a maximum horizontal displacement and 90° angle of launch will give you a maximum vertical displacement. We learned that doing the experiment on the grass lawn was much better than on cement because the grass stopped the movement of the ball. The project can be improved by review of what will be done before that starting of the project. Also a more open project allowing us to vary the project would also improve the experiment.

The History of DinosaursThe History of Dinosaurs The dinosaurs were reptiles that appeared about 230 million years ago. It\'s believed that they had scaly skin and some ate plants and others ate meat. Scientists don\'t know whether or not the dinosaurs were cold blooded, but they think the smaller ones were warm blooded, and the large ones were cold-blooded. In this report you\'ll learn about the earliest dinosaurs, the kinds of dinosaurs, and how the dinosaurs died. There are two main groups of the earliest dinosaurs:
UFOs and Aliens on EarthUFOs and Aliens on Earth If you had mentioned seeing a Unidentified Flying Object (UFO), or spaceship from another planet 100 years ago, you would probably be thought of as a raving lunatic. If you had mentioned one 50 years ago, the case would be thought about, but with much suspicion. Today, many people would believe you, and, if you had evidence to prove it, the government would take a very close interest in your case, yet many people would call you an idiot. Despite all the evidence that ind
Creationism vs. EvolutionCreationism vs. Evolution In my short life on this planet I have come to question things that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves, which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a supposed
HumeHume I was from the beginning scandalised, I must own, with this resemblance between the Deity and human creatures. --Philo David Hume wrote much about the subject of religion, much of it negative. In this paper we shall attempt to follow Hume\'s arguments against Deism as Someone knowable from the wake He allegedly makes as He passes. This kind of Deism he lays to rest. Then, digging deeper, we shall try our hand at a critique of his critique of religion, of resurrecting a natural belief in G
Why Is There Gravity?Why Is There Gravity? When you pick up a stone and release it falls to the ground. This seemingly simple concept has been known throughout history as gravitation. Isaac Newton managed to explain gravity in terms of its effects, but few have come up with a working explanation for the driving force behind it. The mysterious nature of some of the more peculiar effects of gravity, as well as the simple ones, indicate that explaining why there is gravity will be a long, difficult, yet intriguing task
AstronomersAstronomers Part One Brief Descriptions of the Following Astronomers: Walter Baade : Baade was a German-born American, whose work gave new estimates for the age and size of the universe. During the wartime, blackouts aided his observatons and allowed him to indentify and classify stars in a new and useful way, and led him to increase and improve Hubble\'s values for the size and age of the universe (to the great relief of geologists.) He also worked on supernovae and radiostars. Milton Humason :
MountainsMountains I. INTRODUCTION A mountain is an elevated land mass usually higher than its surroundings. Some are isolated, but they usually appear in ranges(MsBs95W32). A group of ranges closely related in form, origin, and alignment is a mountain system; an elongated group of systems is a chain; and a complex of ranges, systems, and chains continental in extent is a cordillera, zone, or belt.(MsBs95W32). Some mountains are remains of plateaus, mesas, and buttes, through erosion(Summerfield). Othe
