• Freefall and Projectile Motion
    gravity is the only force acting upon it, at least initially. In this experiment, a photogate, a chopper, and a Universal Lab Interface were used to determine the free fall motion of the chopper as it was released. A ball, carbon paper, and an L-shape projector were also used to determine the range of...

    Methods: For our first experiment we used a cart attached to weights using a string. The weights were held over an open space, and the cart was attached to a frictionless rail at 0 degrees. The rail was 119 cm long. We would let the weight free fall propelling the cart down the rail at varying...

    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...

    several effects related to Newton’s Second Law, it showed that with constant mass and force, the percent errors were within the accepted value and for varying force, it showed that the value for gravitational acceleration was not sufficient. An error could have been that the gravity value was different from the location. The air track might have not been as leveled as it could have been since it can affect the velocities during the experiment....
