Badminton Projectile Motion uses the Tracker video analysis tool to analyze the motion of a badminton birdie (or shuttlecock) and then to model the motion to include air resistance. The motion of the birdie is already tracked in the video. Students compare the motion to a model of projectile motion without air resistance and then they modify it to include quadratic drag.

The zip file contains the activity handout, two videos and associated Tracker files. The videos included come from the Doane College video library at http://physics.doane.edu/physicsvideolibrary/default.html#projectile
and YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzKdQKoNbL

To open the Tracker file, download and run Tracker from http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/. Tracker is free.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
