New Video Motion Analysis – “Tennis Ball Cannon”

Category : Physics · No Comments · by September 28, 2017

Today was a beautiful day, perfect for launching the tennis ball cannon on the football field. We had a lot of good shots, and took videos of two of them with an iPhone. The first video was shot from the goal line, and landed in the end zone on the other side of the field. The second shot was also shot from the goal line, but it landed well into the track on the other side, for a total distance of 145 yards!

We wrapped the videos up in the app, and have made them available for student analysis. Enjoy, and please let us know if you are using them in your classes!
