Name: Peter BotticelliDr. Walter Schier Partner: Nick Quatieri 03/06/2008195.141.805 – Thursday, 12:30 Experiment # 2Motion In Free-Fall
Objective:The objective of this experiment was to find acceleration due to gravity from the measured rate that the velocity, of a free falling body, chages with time.Setup: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 plaging a mass at the bottom of said tape, the set up is ready. View the attached figure. Brief description of procedure:Obtain approxamately 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.
