  • Measurement of Free-Fall Acceleration

    Measurement of Free-Fall Acceleration Introduction Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), the man first accredited with the correct notion of free-fall with uniform acceleration, stated that 'if one were to remove entirely the resistance of the medium, all materials would descend with equal speed.' Today, this...

  • Lab Conclusion - Acceleration

    Lab Conclusion When comparing the average speed results from part two of the lab and the definition of acceleration, you find similarities between the two. First, average speed is distance divided by time, and we use it to describe the motion of an object moving at changing speeds. We can see this...

  • CONCLUSION DISCUSSION

    CONCLUSION: Based on the results obtained from the experiment it can be concluded that the concentration of enzymes influences the rate of a chemical reaction. If enzyme concentration is decreased then the reaction rate will also decrease. If there is sufficient enzyme to bind with substrate then the...
