1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Last week we did a practical in which we bounced a ball from the same point onto an inclined ramp, from 10-50 degrees and measured the distance from where the ball was dropped and when it hit the table (i.e. place where it landed after it bounced off the ramp). 2. Relevant equations SUVAT equations? 3. The attempt at a solution So now I need to explain the results, I was thinking that it is due to the component of the velocity, so Vcosθ, changes from 25-40, in such a way that cosθ decreases, therefore the horizontal range of the ball decreases. However I then found that cosθ from 15-40 all decreases, so surely the horizontal range of the ball should decrease. So, I am confused, is my thinking correct or am I missing something? (Maybe V, the speed when the ball hits the ramp is different when the ramp is inclined at different angles?). Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
