Experiment 1 Distance Traveled by a Projectile In this experiment you will use kinematic equations to predict the range of a projectile set in motion To do this you will roll marbles down a ramp and off a table to observe vertical and horizontal motion Materials Sheet of Carbon Paper 1 Fishing Sinker Masking Tape 1 Marble Monofilament Line 1 Protractor 1 Ramp Sheet of Printer Paper Tape Measure Pencil Table You Must Provide Note You will need to construct the ramp provided in your lab kit prior to beginning the experiment To do this complete the following steps Ramp Set Up Figure 4 1 Separate the two pieces one long and narrow piece to provide the ramp and one wider piece to provide the base Figure 4 Ramp set up diagram 2 Fold the wider section along the perforations to form a triangular stand 3 Insert the tab through the slot to construct a triangular stand Figure 4 Part 2 4 Insert the tab on long narrow piece into one of three slots on the triangular stand Different slots correspond to different inclines Procedure 2014 eScience Labs LLC All Rights Reserved 1 Find a table upon which to perform the experiment Place the ramp so that its bottom edge is positioned at the edge of the table You will be rolling marbles down the ramp and off the table in this experiment 2 Use a protractor to measure the incline of your ramp Record the incline in Table 1 3 Use a pencil to mark three different locations on the ramp at which you will release the marble This will ensure the marble achieves the same velocity with each trial Hint Use locations near the top middle and bottom of the ramp 4 Create a plumb line by attaching the fishing sinker to the monofilament line 5 Hold the string to the edge of the table and use a piece of masking tape to mark the spot at which the weight touches the ground Note The length of the plumb line will help you measure the exact distance from the edge of the ramp to the position where the marble lands 6 Begin the experiment by releasing the marble
