Collecting Data

With the new and fine-tuned catapult, the group went outside into the field to once again launch. They were hoping to hit the 5, 10, and 15 meter targets more consistently than the last round.The same system of scoring was used as the first round when it came to where the projectile landed.Once again, 60 data points at each target was collected for a total of 180 points.

Success Rate Calculations

The success rates were calculated in the same manner as the first round of data collection.Also, the same table format was used.These percentages are rounded as well.

Modification Outcomes

The modifications made to the catapult were not always helpful. The extension of the lever made the catapult shoot farther, but less accurately. The success percentages for on the targets decreased by a lot while the success percentages for not on the target increased by a lot (this is shown in the table linked to the conclusions page).
