Introduction In this experiment we will be testing the time it takes a tennis ball and a wiffle ball from a height of 557cm. Each ball will have three events and the times will be recorded. Experimental Methods A student will stand a the most highest point that we could find which is 557cm, and another student will stand at the bottom of this height. When student 1 releases a ball, student 2 will start the timer, as soon as the ball hits the ground student 2 will stop the stopwatch and will record the results.

Through this experiment I would conclude that the theoretical time will be more like the time of an object who has some sort of air resistant rather than not having any....
