In the second PHYS 111 lab, repeatedly launched a metal sphere and measured the horizontal distance $$d$$ it traveled. The launch angle was $$\theta$$ and the sphere was fired from a height $$h$$ above the ground. Using the measured value of $$d$$ and the known values of $$g$$, and $$h$$, could determine the launch speed $$v_0$$ of the projectile. However, the expression for $$v_0$$ in terms of $$d$$, $$g$$, $$\theta$$, and $$h$$ was complicated! Things get quite a bit simpler if $$h = 0$$. In this case:

$v = \sqrt{\frac{gd}{2cos(\theta)sin(\theta)}}$

Suppose that, with $$h = 0$$, and their lab partner make 30 measurements of $$d$$. then determines that the average and standard deviation of their 30 measurements were $$\bar{d}$$ = $$m$$ and $$\sigma$$= $$m$$, respectively.

## Part 1#

If g = 9.81 $$\frac{m}{s^2}$$ and $$\theta$$ = , what is the launch speed $$v_0$$?

Please enter in a numeric value in .

## Part 2#

What is the uncertainty in your measured value of $$d$$?

Please enter in a numeric value in .

## Part 3#

What is the uncertainty in the value of $$v_0$$ that you determined? For this problem, assume that the launch angle is known to very high accuracy, such that its uncertainty can be neglected.
