was the initial velocity horizontally directed?
In my physics class we did a lab where we shot a ball bearing from a mechanism. I am wondering how I can calculate the distance it traveled (even thought I measured it) as well as how I can calculate the initial velocity.
The notes I took are as follows:
Height from floor to bottom of ball bearing: 85.4 cm
Average distance ball traveled (out of 10 shots): 250.24 cm
Also, how could I calculate time if I wanted to?
Thanks a ton!
