• Free Fall Measurement of the Gravitational Acceleration
    Abstract In this experiment Newton’s Second Law of Motion was measured with the use of the gravitational acceleration g on Earth by applying a free fall process. Objective The objective of this experiment is to validate Newton’s Second Law of motion. In experimenting the Law the meas...

  • 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 ear...

  • Acceleration on Earth: Measured Through Free Fall
    Objective The aim of 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...

  • Experiment 3: Conditions for Equilibrium
    1. Introduction When we say equilibrium, it is a state of balance. It is a condition where there is no change in the state of motion of a body. Equilibrium also may be at rest or moving within a constant velocity. A simple mechanical body is said to be in equilibrium if no part of it is acceleratin...

  • Free Falling Objects
    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. I...
