Projectile Motion Experiment

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

In a projectile motion experiment, if you wanted to plot the range R versus a quantity that depends on angle (that is, you are going to vary the angle) and that would result in a straight line, what would you choose for the independent function variable (function variable plotted along the horizontal axis)? Explain.

Create an experiment that relates to curvilinear motion

I need help with a simple experiment.

I'm trying to create an experiment that relates to curvilinear motion. However, I'm unsure how to set up an experiment and show all the calculations. Can someone help me with creating a simple experiment to show what curvilinear motion is and do those calculations I can make up the data. I simply need the formulas. I was thinking about doing an experiment with a pendulum. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
