I am working on a project and the topic is: Figuring out what the maximum height of a baton tossed vertically can be. I have never taken a physics class, so this is all completely new to me. I have been working for a little while now, and I didn't know if there were any ideas or equations anyone had for me. Here is the basics of the problem again: Baton Length: 30 inches Being tossed straight up It is rotating vertically to the floor (similar to the rotation on a windmill I suppose) I have a few different trials and numbers for those trials including rotation time, number of rotations, peak rotation... I have noticed that the baton takes longer to rotate on the downfall. Any info would be great!
