Physics Class to Gun Range

L-R: Harlie Willis, Officer Roberts, Jazlyn Alvarez, and Mason Dovel.

Mrs. Beck's Physics students went out to the gun range in Shenandoah with SRO Logan Roberts for a lab.  The purpose of the lab is to use the motion of a projectile to determine its initial velocity.  Officer Roberts fired a round from a weapon into a baseball. The students then measured the distance the ball travels vertically and horizontally .  When the students got back to the classroom they were be able to determine the initial velocity of the bullet using kinematic equations.

What a great experiment!
