Video Analysis of Projectile Motion Using Tablet Computers as Experimental Tools
Klein, P.; Gröber, S.; Kuhn, J.; Müller, A.
Physics Education, v49 n1 p37-40 Jan 2014
Tablet computers were used as experimental tools to record and analyse the motion of a ball thrown vertically from a moving skateboard. Special applications plotted the measurement data component by component, allowing a simple determination of initial conditions and "g" in order to explore the underlying laws of motion. This experiment can easily be performed by students themselves, providing more autonomy in their problem-solving processes than traditional learning approaches. We believe that this autonomy and the authenticity of the experimental tool both foster their motivatio
