We enlist a high school baseball team to help show how objects behave when they travel as horizontally launched projectiles.
Unit 2 Segment G: Horizontally Launched Projectiles We enlist a high school baseball team to help show how objects behave when they travel as horizontally launched projectiles.Premiere Date: August 2, 2018 | Runtime: 00:09:33
-Define key terms related to projectile motion such as projectile, trajectory, range, and hang time.
-Explore why we analyze the motion of a projectile separately in the horizontal and vertical directions.
-Analyze the horizontal and vertical components of motion separately by doing an example.
-Reinforce the idea that elapsed time is the same for an object at its given position in the vertical direction and the horizontal direction.
hang time - the amount of time a projectile remains in the air.
projectile - an object that is moving through the air.
range - the displacement of a projectile in the horizontal direction.
trajectory - the path taken through the air.
The Physics in Motion teacher toolkit provides instructions and answer keys for study questions, practice problems, labs for all seven units of study. GPB offers the teacher toolkit at no cost to Georgia educators. It will be available in September 2018. To preorder your teacher toolkit, complete and submit this form to request the teacher toolkit. You only need to submit this form one time to get materials for all seven units of study.
