Unformatted text preview: lines and chord lines. Finally we found all our slopes and compared them to make sure they fit the velocity that was suppose to be at 0.2 seconds, and made sure the slope for position vs. time graph is similar to the acceleration of gravity. The results for this lab were obtained through the velocity vs. midtime graph. The perfect result would for the slope of the velocity versus midtimes to be -9.8 meters per second. However, we obtained a slope of -9.6 meters per second. The data is attached at the end of this report. In my opinion this lab was really interesting. It gave me a great understanding of the relationship between position, velocity and acceleration in a free fall situation. I also really enjoyed getting to film the ball falling from two meters because it made it easier to see all the forces at work when you put it with the graphs....
