A COMPARISON OF HIGH-SPEED PHOTOGRAPHY AND ACCELEROMETER DATA-REDUCTION TECHNIQUES

A simple experimental test is discussed by which the theoretical kinematic quantities of a moving target can be determined. Experimental data are collected by means of high-speed photography and accelerometers, and the results of the two techniques are compared. It will be shown for the case of interest that the high-speed photography will yield results that are better than those obtained from the accelerometer data. /Author/
