Projectile Motion using Angry Birds

Used Tracker motion analysis today to help us understand more about how projectile motion works. The video below shows how to use the autotracker function to analyse the motion of the Angry Bird.

We used the analysis to figure out how the horizontal and vertical motion of the bird changed over time. We also calculated the approximate length of Angry Bird required to give an acceleration similar to gravity. The question sheet below was used as a guide.
