PROJECTILE MOTION

THE PHYSICS OF PROJECTILE MOTION FROM AN ANGRY BIRDS PERSPECTIVE

OBJECTIVE

In this activity you will be uncovering the basic principles of Projectile Motion




DIRECTIONS

1. Download the attached movie to the desktop
2. Open LoggerPro
3. Insert the Movie 
4. Set the scale. Clearly explain your assumptions.
5. Mark the video
ANALYSIS

1. Sketch the position versus time graph for the x-component.

2. Write a qualitative description of the motion shown on the graph. 

3. Use the Analyze feature and write down the information obtained with appropriate units. (Hint: what does the slope represent?)

4. Sketch the position versus time graph for the y-component.

5. Write a qualitative description of the motion depicted on the graph. 

6. Use the Analyze feature and write down the information obtained with appropriate units. (Hint: what equation describes this graph?)
    a. Print a copy of the graph for you and your partner
    b. Save the graph as an image (Yourname_Yourpartner)
        and attach it below
EXTENSION

1. Write down the information gathered from the graphs for the Horizontal and Vertical components. 

2. Calculate the magnitude and direction of the launch velocity vo

3. Calculate the total time the bird is in the air. 

4. What is the maximum height achieved by the bird?

5. What horizontal distance does the bird travel?
