Experiment # 2Motion in Free FallObjective:The objective of this experiment was to find acceleration due to gravity from themeasured rate that the velocity, of a free falling body, changes with timeSetup:
A large table supported set up was used. A large table clamp supported a tape timer a certain distance off the floor. By feeding the paper tape trough the timing unit and placinga mass at the bottom of said tape, the setup is ready. View the attached figure. Brief description of procedure:Obtain approximately 60cm of tape.Form a loop at one end of the tape and feed the other end of the tape through the timing unit.While holding the top of the tape attach a 200g mass to the loop.Turn the timing unit to 40 Hz and release the tape.Remove the mass and tape down the tape to the workbench.Number the dots printed on the tape starting at zero, while discarding the dots that are very close together from the start of the drop.
