The O'Donnell Foundation is devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
Over the summer PhET will be hard at work upgrading our simulations for the new school year! Help support our summer vacation work and give the gift of learning by donating today!
|School / Organization||Interlake HS and UW|
|Title||Projectile launch angle vs displacement|
|Simulations||Gerak Peluru (Gerak Parabola)|
|Keywords||projectile, angle, range, displacement|
|Description||This is a short investigation of optimal angle for launching projectiles (yielding maximum range) that asks the student to first collect data, explain, and then try to derive a physics/ math proof. The idea is for student to solve for the solution both through data collection and analysis and via proof.|
