It consists of two major components--the projectile carrier and the payload. The projectile carrier delivers the payload to the target. The payload consists of 116 WP-saturated felt wedges. The smoke screen is produced when a predetermined fuze action causes ejection of the payload from the projectile. After ejection, the WP-saturated felt wedges in the payload fall to the ground in an elliptical pattern.
First securely fasten the PVC pipe to 2 ring stands and then secure the two photo gates in front of the pipe in order to calculate actual velocity. 2. Measure the distance between the two photo gates and record it in your data table, then record the angle the PVC pipe is being shot at (cannot be zero) and then record it in your data table. 3. Place the carbon paper on top of paper on the wall in the general vicinity of where the ball we be shot at.
IBDP Physics Practice Lab - Factors Affecting the Drop Time of a Falling Body By Clevis Tam Aim: To investigate how the relationship of the terminal velocity of a falling parachute depends on the mass of the clay. Variables: • Independent Variables: The mass of the Clay (g) • Dependent Variables: The time the clay takes to reach the ground (s), The speed of the clay that is processed after collecting data (ms -1) • Controlled Variables: Method of releasing the clay, the area of the parachute Materials / Apparatus: 1. Meter Ruler (0-1m, measures to 0.001m) 2. Electronic Stopwatch (measures to 0.01s) 3. Drop Height (2.56m) 4.
Description: In these series of experiments the apparatus we used was a spring gun that for the first experiment shot a steel ball freely which eventually struck the floor. For the second and third experiments the gun fired the steel ball into a pendulum. To measure the velocity of the steel ball, when it was launched freely, carbon paper and a 2-meter ruler were used to determine the distance it travelled and then kinematics were used to calculate the balls initial velocity. When the steel ball was launched into the pendulum the laws of conservation of energy and momentum were utilized to determine the balls initial velocity. Theory: 3 Kinematic Measurement of Speed In this experiment the steel ball was moving in two dimensions both horizontally and vertically.
And third, does force have an impact on the distance the projectile travels? Upon completion of my research, it can be concluded that the length of the arm of the trebuchet and force does affect the distance a projectile will travel. Trebuchets are simple structures consisting of two A-frames with an axel between them. Around the axel is a lever arm that pivots. One end of the lever is shorter and carries a counter weight; and on the other end is a sling that carries a projectile.
Aim: To determine the reaction time of a student. Variables: The distance the metre stick fell. Constants: The acceleration due to gravity. The time the metre stick took to fall. List of apparatus: one metre rule one stop watch Set up diagram: Method: 1.

This would make the ball come out of the machine at 50 mph. You should be able to catch on by now. To adjust the direction of the machine, you will need to turn the silver knob at the end of the handle counter clockwise to loosen and clockwise to secure machine. See picture for location of silver handle. 5.

AS Physics Coursework: Quality of Measurement A Comparison of Methods of Measuring the Same Thing (Measuring ‘g’) Introduction For my physics coursework I am going to be doing “A comparison of methods of measuring the same thing”, the thing I will be measuring is gravity. Gravity is the force that pulls everything to the centre of the earth and its known value is 9.81 Newton’s. I will do this by dropping a ball over a set distance while measuring the time. And with these values I can use the SUVAT equations to find the acceleration due to gravity. And can then compare the result I get to the known value of gravity, 9.81N.
