    We have decided to perform two experiments involving the forces of weight acceleration and mass. These experiments seek to explore the relationship between force, mass and acceleration as previously determined by Isaac Newton. Newton’s second law states that F=ma, accelerating a mass gives us a force...

  • 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...

    The purpose 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...

    this experiment was to determine the gravitational acceleration (g) by allowing an object to experience free fall from a specific height. Objects in free fall do not undergo any other acceleration other than that caused by the force of gravity. In this case we will be measuring the gravitational acceleration...
