Physics 211 Experiment 1: Free Fall - Determining the acceleration of gravity
Prior to Lab: Derive the numbered equations (Equations 1, 2 and 3) in the lab instructions using the definitions of velocity and acceleration (a=dv/dt and v=dy/dt).
Object: The object of this experiment is to determi...

Small variations in the acceleration due to gravity, g, occur at different places on Earth. This is because g varies with distance from the center of the Earth and is influenced by the subsurface geology. In addition, g varies with latitude due to Earth’s rotation. In this activ...
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...
Free fall and the acceleration due to gravity
Problem/Question: How do you measure the acceleration of a falling object?
Hypothesis: by measuring velocities of a falling ball then applying the data into equations numerous times, the results should approach to the acceleration.

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...
