Hit the Target Activity














Use kinematic equations and projectile motion principles to predict a launch speed, horizontal displacement, or launch height in order to successfully fire a cannonball into the target position.


See Activity Directions and Data Sheet.

Tutorial information on solving horizontally launched projectile problems is available in Unit 3 at The Physics Classroom.
