"Shoot for your Grade"
Obj: Predict the landing spot of a projectile launched horizontally from an elevated platform.
Materials: incline, steel ball, stopwatch, meter stick
IMPORTANT: The steel ball must never leave the table when taking data. Only when you are ready to shoot for your grade will the ball be allowed to land on the floor.
1. Roll the steel ball down the ramp several
times, recording the necessary data to determine the average speed at which it
will be launched horizontally off the table.
