First report Thu 18 January 2018 spitwad

In the physics lab, a basketball is pushed at a constant force as it passes evenly spaced out markings. Students will be working together doing different jobs such as ball pusher, timer, and spitwaders. As the ball is being pushed, the timer will yell out as every second passes and spitwads will be fired at the current position of the ball. After six seconds of this being repeated, students will then take a meter stick and measure the distance from the start to the origin of the grouped spitballs. With all the positions of the ball marked at certain times, students can calculate the velocity of the ball.
