Velocity Of Different Objects

Team: 61


Area of Science: Aerodynamics

Abstract: Our project is studying the velocity of projectile of objects. How? We are going to model the launch system based upon paintball gun principles. We are going to use three different sizes of barrels, three different psi settings of air, and three different sizes of projectiles. We will be calculating the trajectories of objects being fired with different variables. Theses variables are angles, forces, sizes, and shapes. We will use computers to calculate different variables. We are going to use more formulas from physics for projectile motion.
