    . In this experiment, a precise timer was connected to the computer and a Photogate was used to measure the acceleration due to gravity. “The Photogate has a beam of infrared light that travels from one side to the other. It can detect whenever this beam is blocked.” A Picket Fence or a chopper, a...
