• Acceleration Due to Gravity
    Acceleration Due to Gravity Have you ever wondered why items always speed up when they are falling? Well it all has to do with acceleration due to gravity. Acceleration is the rate at which an object changes its velocity. Acceleration can be calculated by finding the change in velocity and dividin...

    An air track is an apparatus that simulates the effects of frictionless motion. A known mass is attached to an air-cart on an air-track apparatus. Attached by string, the air-cart is pulled by the known mass when hung over a pulley. A spark timer will mark the motion at a frequency of 10 Hz (10 dots...

    I. Introduction 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...
