This web page provides a unique, multimedia introduction to projectiles. It includes topics such as drag and air resistance, a simple experiment to measure g, the independence of vertical and horizontal motion, trajectory, and range. Short video clips, still images, graphs, and diagrams are integrated with text to promote understanding of important concepts. The two opening video clips, featuring the classic "Hammer and Feature Drop" on the Moon and on Earth, should be an especially engaging warm-up.
This tutorial is part of the PhysClip collection of web-based resources on introductory mechanics, electricity, and magnetism.
This resource is part of a Physics Front Topical Unit.
Topic: Kinematics: The Physics of Motion
Unit Title: Motion in More Than One Dimension
A unique and highly-engaging tutorial developed by the authors of Australia's PhysClips. Short film clips, photos, and diagrams are integrated with simple text to spark interest. The first two videos feature the classic "Hammer and Feather Drop", both on the moon and on Earth.....a great springboard to discuss air resistance.Link to Unit:
