Projectile motion

In this virtual laboratory you will investigate projectile motion with and without air resistance.  You will find the maximum range of a football with given initial velocity and the launch angles required for it to hit a target.

Go to Canvas, Assignments, Extra Credit 3.  Use the simulation to help you answer questions 1 - 5. 


Open the Projectile Motion simulation. 

Projectile speed: 20 m/s
  Maximum range Launch angle (deg) Maximum height (m) Hang time (s)
no air resistance        
drag coefficient 0.5
