MOTION IN FREE FALL EXPERIMENT Date of Experiment: 2/17/2018 Mickey Doeun Partner: Samuel Figlock Course Number:1410L Section:825 Professor Wei Guo This experiment was conducted to understand gravitational forces along with recorded times and accelerations.
Introduction Gravitational attractions will vary depending on the weight of an object. When a fixed weight of 200g is dropped from a fixed position, the magnitude and acceleration of the object should remain constant throughout the free fall. Finding the acceleration of the object in this experiment, the equation that will be used is: A=V-V0/t or V=V0+at From then, the object’s instantaneous velocity average velocity of the object will be known. Apparatus and Procedure Materials: Tape (60cm in length) Masking Tape Ruler/Yard Stick 200g Weight with an attached hook on top Tape Timer The experiment starts with measuring a roll of paper tape at 60cm and obtain the piece. A loop is then made at one end of the tape only. The loop is then looped around the hook of the
