1. Easy solution that I'm pretty sure I talked myself out of. Using a spring loaded shooter, first shoot it off a table and calculate data and then move to another table of a different height and shoot with an incline into a sandbox. Must hit within 10cm of line drawn in the sand. known info - y(f) = 1.62 m from center of ball to second platform, θ = 27 ° f(g) = 9.8 m/s/s, using same shooter described in 2 2. Relevant equations information from straight shot from a table at .86m Initial Final x₀= 0 x = 2.925 m y₀ = 0 y = .86 m v₀ = 6.98 m/s v = 6.98 m/s v₀ = 0 v = 4.11 m/s t₀ = 0 t = .419 s a = 0 a = 9.8 m/s/s 3. The attempt at a solution The only thing i need to know is if acceleration in the x direction would change (no other different factors) when changing from shooting in a straight line versus shooting up in the air at an angle. I know the different velocity equations (Vsinθ) so no problem their. I do not think it does change as using same spring but, I started to question myself when thinking about the parabolic shape of the projectile motion along the x axis when shot with a 27 degree up angle.
