Physics project I had to build a trebuchet.

  1. Nov 4, 2004 #1
    For a physichs project I had to build a trebuchet. I measured how for it shot, and how long it took. After some calculations I got:
    Vi in the X= 6.258
    VI in the y= 6.64
    Accel in X= 0
    Accel in Y= -9.8
    Distance in the X= 4.8
    Distance in the Y= 2.25
    Time in the X= 1.36
    Time In the Y= .68

    Now after that I am supposed to pick different points on the arc and measure the Velocity in the Y and X. Im not sure what distance to use? For instance if I wanted to measure the velocity at .1 seconds in the arc on the X and Y, what would I use?

    Can anyone help Crouch? I got a PM asking for help, but I am afraid I would be pretty useless here. Heck, I don't even know what a trebuchet is!!! :blushing:

    Nevermind. This appears to be a duplicate thread.
