    20 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: M. Peastrel, R. Lynch, A. Armenti, A. Armenti Jr.

    Peastrel, M., R. Lynch Lynch, and A.Armenti, Jr. 1980. Terminal velocity of a shuttlecock in vertical fall. American Journal of Physics. 48(7): 511-513.Article Abstract:  We have performed a straightforward vertical fall experiment for a case where the effects of air resistance are important...

  3. 3-019-S-ShuttlecockFall

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We are given data on the time and position of a shuttlecock as it falls to the ground from a set height. We attempt to model the falling object and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and...

  4. 3-013-S-WhiffleBallFall

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.
