  • Picket Fence Free Fall
    Picket Fence Free Fall We say an object is in free fall when the only force acting on it is the Earth’s gravitational force. No other forces can be acting; in particular, air resistance must be either absent or so small as to be ignored. When the object in free fall is near the surface of the earth...

    dynamic cart and linear motion with constant (uniform) acceleration, (e.g. free fall of motion). At the end of the experiment we found out that the velocity is a speed that involves direction of an object as well as the time. While for the acceleration, it is directly proportional to the distance or height...

  • Free Falling Objects
    of the Picket Fence Free Fall Lab was to examine the acceleration of objects as they fall to earth. During free-fall the only force that should be acting upon the object is the earth’s gravitational pull (9.8 m/s/s), therefore the velocity of the object should always equal 9.8 m/s/s. In this lab the picket...
