Question 1

Procedure: Keep the initial velocity fixed at 50 m/s. Perform the experiment for each of the following angles:

15 degrees
30 degrees
45 degrees
60 degrees
75 degrees
Record in table 1:

The maximum horizontal distance (Range) traveled by the projectile at various angles
The total time of flight at various angles
The maximum height attained

What angle produces the maximum height? Why?
Are there angles which produce the same range? If so, how would you explain this?

Question 2

Procedure: Set the angle to 45 degrees. Perform the experiment with the following initial velocities.

30 m/s
40 m/s
50 m/s
60 m/s
Record in Table 2: The horizontal and vertical components of the velocity and the ranges for each of the velocities.

Observe and Analyze:

As the velocity is increased what happens to the Range?
Using the initial horizontal and vertical velocities from your table, verify mathematically that the range is correct for the initial speed of 60 m/s.
