Laboratory reports are an essential component of a physics education.
Download this document and record the results in the table below as prompted by the procedure. Save the completed document to your computer, include photos, and upload the final 1–2-page Word document.
Take a photo of the setup at the prompt in the assignment.
The Data Table is intended to be filled out from left to right with the columns before calculated distance being computed by the principles within the laboratory exercise. Using the data table, calculate for an initial angle (and incremented angles thereafter), the acceleration of the steel ball, the velocity, time until the ball hits the ground, and the horizontal distance the ball should travel. You will mark the calculated position on the floor and then measure the actual distance traveled.
1. Billy Joe stands on the Talahatchee Bridge kicking stones into the water below. If Billy Joe kicks a stone with a horizontal velocity of 3.50m/s, and it lands in the water a horizontal distance of 5.40m from where Billy Joe is standing, what is the height of the bridge?
2. The movie “The Gods Must Be Crazy” begins with a pilot dropping a bottle out of an airplane. It is recovered by a surprised native below, who thinks it a message from the gods. If the plane from which the bottle was dropped was flying at an altitude of 500m and the bottle lands 400m horizontally from the initial drop, how fast was the plane flying when the bottle was released?
3. Tad drops a cherry pit out the car window 1.0m above the ground while traveling down the road at 18m/s. How far, horizontally, from the initial dropping point will the pit hit the ground?
4. In many locations, old abandoned stone quarries have been filled with water once excavating has been completed. While standing on a 10m high quarry wall, Clarence tosses a piece of granite into the water below. If Clarence throws the rock horizontally with a velocity of 3.0m/s, how far from the edge of the cliff will it hit the water?
5. While skiing, Ellen encounters an unexpected icy bump, which she leaves horizontally at 12m/s. How far out horizontally, from her starting point will Ellen land if she drops a distance of 7.00m in the fall?
I need help with three problems in physics and I’m looking for someone who can help me with my physics assignment:
1. Billy-Joe stands on the Talahatchee Bridge kicking stones into the water below.
(a) If Billy-Joe kicks a stone with a horizontal velocity of 3.90 m/s, and it lands in the water a horizontal distance of 6.20 m from where Billy-Joe is standing, what is the height of the bridge?
(b) If the stone had been kicked harder, how would this affect the time it would take to fall?
2. The movie “The Gods Must Be Crazy” begins with a pilot dropping a bottle out of an airplane. It is recovered by a surprised native below, who thinks it is a message from the gods. If the plane from which the bottle was dropped was flying at an altitude of 700. m, and the bottle lands 500. m horizontally from the initial dropping point, how fast was the plane flying when the bottle was released?
3. Tad drops a cherry pit out of the car window 1.2 m above the ground while traveling down the road at 24 m/s. How far, horizontally, from the initial dropping point will the pit hit the ground?
PHY 241 Research Project You will create an 8-10 minute video presentation on a topic in physics. The video presentation can be a detailed PowerPoint presentation or any other form of presentation to convey the research project. Topic The topic of the project must be approved by the professor by the date specified. This project must include topics from at least three different modules that have been covered in this course, so choose your topic carefully. This topic can be a current “hot topic” in physics, or a historical discovery from the past. Content The video should include not only the general results of your research, but also how your personal learning in the course has allowed you to understand the topic you are researching. You may use PowerPoint slides or any other visual aids in your video, but it must be a video you create and present. As this is a research project, you will need to cite references. This should be done throughout your presentation, with a list of references at the end. Multiple references should be used. Deliverables The video can be made in Studio, Canvas, or the program of your choosing. The video must have good quality so that your voice and presentation can be seen and understood. Your video will be submitted in a discussion board in Canvas labeled “Physics Research Project”. You may follow the directions on recording and sharing a video in Canvas in your Canvas course site. You will also be required to watch a minimum of 3 other student’s videos and comment meaningfully on their videos. “Great job!” and “Wow I didn’t know that!” do not count as meaningful comments. Write comments about what you learned from the video, how it helped you understand some concept, how it might play a role in your life experiences, or other comments that show a meaningful engagement with the video presentation. List of Requirements for Physics Research Project • Project will be on a physics topic as approved by instructor.

Your Checklist Please refer to the checklist to review your video presentation and the postings in the discussion forum to make sure you have completed the research project. • Physics Topic • 3 separate modules • Personal learning experience • 8 to 10 minutes in length • Organized • Physics content • References • Response to other videos.
Please submit your report as a file upload by clicking the Start Assignment button above. Your submission should be in one of these formats:
A Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx)
A PDF file (.pdf).
Each problem is graded on a 100-point scale. The Writing in Science project is worth 15% of your course grade. It will be graded according to the following criteria:
The correctness of your solution (30 pts)
Illustrations/ Free body diagrams (20 pts)
Clearly typed equations, formulae, and explanations (30 pts)
Organization and overall clarity (including correct grammar) (20 pts)
Watch a movie related to any type of disorder (PLEASE NO BEAUTIFUL MIND, not ALLOWED)
You need to have a three or four paragraphs about the movie. Discuss what gave you the hint of the disorder relative to your observation of symptoms. then take a couple of articles from the library and research the disease process identified in the movie and write about what it is its etiology treatments and medications including adverse effects and what to monitor. Also, discuss cultural issues if applicable and teach what the nurse might do for pt and family. Also, discuss nursing diagnosis and interventions identifying priorities. NO powerpoints. 4 to 5 pages to include a title page and reference page. I will send a paper discussing these issues Paper must be organized so that it flows.
Use APA format
Movie Blonde Marilyn Monroe
You have to make observation and take data on the Full moon day. If weather is not good at that that day, you can do it a day before or after. You are taking data when moon is at two different positions. One near the horizon and another high above in the sky. Ideally it is done around 6 pm when moon is rising and again 3 to 4 hours later. But it can also be done on near the midnight and another before it sets around 5 to 6 am in the morning.
Since it is date sensitive experiment, late submission for partial credit is not available.
(Important: Next lab, the lab 4 is already posted. It is because, it requires four observations a week apart each. You should take the first observation within few days after midterm. You will see Moon in the evening sky)
Instructions for writing a Lab report
The goal of a scientific report is to communicate the reader the purpose, methods, data and the
result of your work. You must be mindful about how much detail to put in the report. If you put
too much detail, it becomes boring. If you don’t write in a particular format, it may become story
rather than a scientific report. Therefore, it has to be concise but detailed enough so that interested
people can replicate the result if they want. For our labs, depending on how well you write
(communicate), and the nature of the lab, you may have anywhere from a page or two of writing.
The report may vary slightly depending on the nature of the project but all of them have
• Title of the Experiment: It is descriptive name of your project not lab 1 or 2. (1 point)
• Your name: You want to tell you did the work.
• Viewing location and name of the others in your group if you took data as a group (1
point): Location such as name of the park, intersection of streets etc. Don’t write your home
address for your privacy. But writing just at my home is NOT enough. Write none for the
name of others if you did it ALONE.
• Statement of Purpose (2 points): One or two sentences stating the objective(s) of the
experiment (in your own words) will be sufficient.
• Procedure (4 points): It should contain a concise and well-written description of what
you observed/measured and how you did it in past tense. (Like length was measured or I
measured the length instead of measure the length). You can list them if you like. Person
reading your report should be able to do the experiment by reading your procedure.
• Data and Calculation (8 points): In this section you present the data you obtained while
doing the observation/experiment and show the relevant calculation. Use tables and
graphs where appropriate. Sketch the observation with your hand when needed. Copied
sketch or diagram doesn’t earn any point. Always properly label your sketches including
the time and date of your observations (remember the date changes at midnight). Use SI
units, appropriate number of significant figures and scientific notation. Calculate the
percent discrepancy between you results and the standard result when the standard result is
known. Remember, showing your work is more important than the result.
• Conclusion and Analysis (4 points): State the results clearly and discuss the relation
between your results and the expected or predicted results. Include possible sources of
errors and way to improve it using other techniques. Source of error and ways to improve
it earns 2 points in this section.
Note: Do not use cover page. Keep up with due dates. You need to turn in your electronic report
in pdf format by uploading on canvas by the due date. You can compose your report in Microsoft
word including equations, sketches, picture and save as pdf before submitting it. If you can’t
draw and write equation in Microsoft-word, you can write do that on paper and take picture and
include that in report on proper place. Emailed labs will not be accepted and it will not extend
the due date. There will be 20% deduction for late labs turned in within a week from announced
due date and time. More than a week late lab will not be counted as zero. Happy learning science
and scientific methods!
