Projectile Motion: Part 1

Parabolic Flight / Grades 9-12 / Physics / Algebra / Graphing

This lesson introduces students to projectile motion. Specifically, students use spoon catapults to observe, record, analyze, and graph the independent forces involved in projectile flight and trajectories. Part 1 examines horizontal acceleration and motion related to time and distance.

Below are the materials for this module.
