Abstract

This project is a collection of smaller projects that are brought together under the unifying theme of using the scientific method to further understand observed phenomena. These phenomena include catapults with an emphasis on projectile motion and the range equation, understanding the physics of corking a bat and if it has any effect, and further understanding resonance by constructing a solid state Tesla coil.
