IntroductionThe purpose of this study is to test the theory of motion based on the idea that all freely falling bodieshave the same motion. The theory states that “All falling bodies fall with the same motion; started together,they fall together and the body gains speed at a steady rate.” The data collected for this project was from agroup of classmates that calculated the distance and time it took for a ball to hit the ground from the top-mostheight one of them could reach. They used a go motion device to calculate the position the ball was at everysecond and then transferred that data in real time onto a excel spreadsheet to create a chart. From there wetook that data to create a scattered marker only graph that put points at every position of time the ball was ateach second. We kept the points that were basically the starting point and the first point of contact to theground.
