Hank's Lab: The Physics of Projectiles

Splat! If you’re like our favorite lab assistant, Hank, then smashing pumpkins isn’t just the name of a ’90s rock band. It’s a great way to introduce students to the natural laws governing projectiles and ways to calculate velocity, acceleration, time of flight, and more. To make things a little more fun for students, let Hank introduce them to the topic with the video above, then dive in with our free downloadable activity, complete with diagrams, formulas, and example problems.
