Fifth Homework (Path of Action Analysis)Due Thursday, Sept. 29th (Two weeks)15 points (10 points if late)

For full schedule, visit course website:ArtPhysics123.pbworks.comPick up a clicker, find the right channel, and enter Student ID1Homework Assignment #4We will be using a video analysis program called "Tracker" to study motion. Download a copy of the program from the Tracker website:


Run the Tracker program on your computer, import the video clip of a falling object that you created in the previous homework assignment and analyze the falling motion. This assignment is due by 8am on Thursday, September 15th (this week).2Homework #4

HorizontalMotionVerticalMotionImage you post on your blog should look something like this.3Activating your Clicker* Turn on your clicker.* Enter the channel number or letter for joining this class. Hit Enter/Send key.* Clicker should read AP123KF11* Type in your student ID; hit Enter/Send.Clicker is now ready to use; leave it on.

Hit any key to wake the clicker from sleep mode.4Survey QuestionHow easy have you found it to use the Tracker software?

Pretty easy to useA little confusing but OKFrustrating to useHavent tried using it yet

Note: You score 1 point of credit for answering survey questions, regardless of your answer.5

Review QuestionWhats wrong with the spacings in these drawings of a ball thrown in the air?

Vertical spacings wrong; horizontal spacings are OK.Horizontal spacings wrong; vertical spacings are OKBoth vertical and horizontal spacings are wrong.Actually, the spacings are OK for this path of action.

6Review QuestionC) Both vertical and horizontalspacings are wrong.

The vertical spacings are too uniform; the motion should slow in as it rises.

The horizontal spacings should be uniform but instead they slow out going left to right.


Madagascar 2 (2008)Carefully observe the path of action when the plane is in the air.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Anflb_oWdgo8Review Question

This path of action is a parabolic arc.TrueorFalse9Review Question

False.The arc is shallow when the plane flies off the cliff but very steep after the apex.Parabolic arc is symmetric about the apex10Paths ofAction(cont.)


Throwing at an AngleWith no gravity, a thrown object would follow a straight line.

Due to gravity, the object falls beneath this line, just as if released from rest.

Monkey lets go of the branch the moment he hears the gun fire.Rifle is aimed at monkeys nose.Bullet hits the monkey:Above the noseOn the noseBelow the nose

13Shoot the Monkey

B) On the nose.Bullet and monkey fall at same rate so they stay at the same height.

This happens even if the gun aims at an angle.Bullet and monkey fall at same rate.

15Speed (1994)In Speed, a city bus jumps across an unfinished freeway bridge in Los Angeles.

Is this jumpunrealistic?16Speed (1994)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX6aVa7B2qQ

17Speed (1994)

The bus should be in the air for about one second (although in the movie its over seven seconds).Missing section is about two bus lengths, which is 80-90 feet. At 65 m.p.h. you travel about 95 feet per second.18Speed (1994)

Since the bus is in the air for about a second it drops 16 feet so the angle of the bridge would have to be about 10 degrees for the bus to land correctly on the other side.

90 feet16 feetPopping a wheelie does not help!19Speed (1994)

The film makers did not jump a bus over a gap in a bridge. In fact the gap in this bridge is fake; it was painted in digitally.However they forgot to paint out the shadow on the ground.20Speed (1994)

This part of the film was digitally painted in.The bus jump is a stunt filmed with a real bus but the gap is fake.21

Siege of Jerusalem

The trebuchet was the ultimate mechanical siege engine. Developed in the Far East and brought west in the 10th century by the Mongol and Muslim armies.European armies adopted the trebuchet during the Crusades of the 12th century.

Counterweight lifted by human powered hamster wheels24

MangonelThe mangonel is a simplified trebuchet using a fixed counter-weight.


Releasing the ProjectileThe release mechanism is designed to throw the rock at a 45 degree angle.45Release26Importance of Range

Heavy medieval weapons had to operate outside the range of archers (about 200 yards).

A trebuchet can hurl stones out to 350 yards, with a launch speed of 130 miles per hour.27LotR: Return of the King (2003)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bFTw95pJp8

28Kingdom of Heaven (2005)

Several full-size trebuchets were built for the film Kingdom of Heaven.Many more were inserted into the movie by digital effects.29Tracking and Motion Graphs

30Using Reference

Animator Ken Harris at work, using himself as a model.Visual artists have always used models and reference in their work.

One of the most useful tools for the modern animator is the digital movie camera.31Video Reference & Madagascar 2http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUBEwUvtssE32Horton Hears a Whohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouaspd_dr5o
