Objective: To calculate the gravitational constant g on Earth using free-fall motion of objects and Newton’s second law of motion in order to calculate this constant. Procedure: The lab group first had to find a spot which the objects could be dropped from the 2 nd or 3 rd floor. Our locations was measured to be 7.3 meters from the ground. This was preformed using a 30 meter measuring tape. Then the group proceeded to drop two objects which were a small light ball, and the rubber foot of a chair. One group member stood at ground level in the vicinity of where the balls were to hit. This person held a stop watch in order to record the time it took for the ball to travel from its release point on the ground. Another group member stood at the release point, counting to 3 before releasing

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
