Unformatted text preview: Pirtle 1 Acceleration Due to Gravity September 20, 2007 Raelyn Pirtle Partner : Chase Habkouk Pirtle 2 Experimental Objective : The purpose of this experiment is to measure accelerated linear motion and to find out the acceleration due to gravity, or g. We will determine g by looking at the connections between velocity, position, time, and acceleration. These values will be measured or calculated after dropping a piece of tape through a synchronized timer. Quantities to be measured : S = position (measured with meter stick in cm) This measurement will be used to determine the velocity (m/s), the acceleration (m/s 2 ), and time (sec). These measurements will combine to give the objective. The change in position divided by the change in time will give the average velocity. The change in velocity divided by the change in time will give the acceleration.
