Instructions Click the X Position and Y Position to see how they change over time. Change the cannon angle and launch force. Click Launch to launch the cannonball. Goals Launch and plot x position
Launch and plot y position
Change cannon angle
Change launch force


Instructions Click the kinetic and potential energy to see how they change over time. Goals Launch and plot kinetic energy
Launch and plot potential energy


Instructions Change the cannon angle, launch the cannonball, and record the distance in the table. Repeat until you have added at least 4 cannon angles to the plot. Goals Plot cannon angle vs. distance


Instructions Change the launch force, launch the cannonball, and record the distance in the table. Repeat until you have added at least 4 launch forces to the plot. Goals Plot launch force vs. distance


Instructions Change the gravity, launch the cannonball, and record the distance in the table. Repeat until you have added at least 4 gravity values to the plot. Goals Plot gravity vs. distance


Instructions Change the air resistance, launch the cannonball, and record the distance in the table. Repeat until you have added at least 4 air resistances to the plot. Goals Plot air resistance vs. distance


Instructions Change the wind, launch the cannonball, and record the distance in the table. Repeat until you have added at least 4 wind values to the plot. Goals Plot wind vs. distance
