PHY 266 Projectile Motion and Numerical Integration 1 Trajectory with no air resistance A A canon ball is fired straight up with an initial velocity v0 Assuming no air resistance write an expression for the position of the ball as a function of time yt B Now open the Excel le plotting the trajectory Look at the different columns and see how they are calculated For one pair of columns y and V are calculated analytically using the equation from part a For the next pair y and V are calculated numerically This is done as follows First and initial position y0 and velocity v0 are defined Knowing the net force on the ball the acceleration may be calculated using Newton s 2nd law a0 FO m After a short interval of time dt we can estimate the new velocity by assuming the acceleration was constant over that interval vl v0 a0 dt Likewise we can nd the position at this time ya W t V0 dt This process is then repeated over and over again to find later values of a v and y an Fn m vn1 vn an dt yn1 yn vn dt Currently the data only runs to 16 seconds To extend the calculation just copy and past the last row This is numerical integration Speci cally this particular method is called a Left Riemann Sum The process is illustrated below graphically Note that as the interval dt decreases the accuracy of the estimate improves dt Area Av 0 at Area Ay V t II Canon ball trajectory with air resistance Now that we have a basic scheme for doing numerical integrals it is straightforward to do other problems which are difficult or even impossible to solve analytically Modify this problem to include air resistance The force of drag is given by a 1 A F pv2ACd v p density of air or 1292 kgm3 v velocity A cross sectional area of the projectile Cd drag coefficient 01 for a smooth sphere A Assume the mass ofthe ball is 10 kg the initial velocity is 200 ms and the radius of the ball is 01 m B On the same graph plot the trajectory of the ball with and without air resistance What is the maximum altitude for each case C Increase the initial velocity to 400 ms What are the new maximum altitudes III Rocket trajectory with air resistance Now consider a rocket with an initial mass of 5 kg red from rest straight up The rocket engine burns for 3 seconds and consumes 5 kg of fuel ie the rocket loses 5 kg of mass over 3 seconds The thrust of the rocket while it is burning is 100 N Assume the drag coefficient is 025 and the radius of the rocket is 01 m A Plot the trajectory of the rocket with and without air resistance What are the maximum altitudes B Increase the thrust of the rocket to 400 N Plot the new trajectories of the rocket What are the new maximum altitudes PRECESSION of a GYROSCOPE L l 11 PURPOSE to measure the precession rate ofa g roscope and compare the measured mic to

The gravitational constant G is rather difficult to measure with precision in the laboratory The trouble is that the gravitational forces between masses of laboratory size are extremel small and thus a very delicate apparatus is needed to detect these forces Henry Cavendish 73 l 1810 an English experimental physicist and chemist used a torsion balance similar to that used earlier by Coulomb to determine what we know as Coulomb s law We will use a torsion balance also since it gives good results for G and also illustrates some principles of rotational mechanics Because the apparatus is so delicate it is important that you understan t e experimental procedure so that you can carry out the measurements correctly the rst time If you e a mistake you will need to come in some other time because it takes several hours for the apparatus to settle down A diagram of the torsion balance is shown below Two equal large masses M are brought near the two small masses m attached to a rigid

system will be in equilibrium with masses M in position 1 the ber is twisted clockwise and the laser betuu is at spot So on the scales The suspension ber with beam and small masses m form a torsional pendulum lfynu switch the masses M to position 1 the beam will oscillate with damped harmonic motion until it reaches the new equilibrium in which the ber is twisted counterclockwise as shown
