Projectile Motion

Students calculate the initial velocity of a stretched spring and use their calculations to predict where the spring will land. In this elastic energy instructional activity, students stretch and shoot a spring vertically and gather data to establish a relationship between height and stretch.  They use this data to calculate the initial velocity of the spring and apply the concepts to horizontal shooting of the spring.
