In the Projectile Hoops software, a ball is shot into projectile motion with a known angle and initial velocity. Students must place three hoops at the correct vertical distance to intercept the projectile. A score is kept for each ten tries and can be added to a high score table. An Excel spreadsheet that calculates the answers is included.
Two versions of a lab that utilizes the Pasco projectile launcher are also included. First, students must calculate the velocity of the ball shot horizontally out of the launcher. Then using this velocity, students are given an angle for the launcher and must calculate the new range and accurately hit a target.
Requirements: PC or MAC with Flash player
