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.
