OBJECTIVE1.To investigate the functional relationship between height of fall and falling time. 2.To determine the acceleration due to gravity, g by studying the motion of a freely falling body.THEORYIf the body of mass is accelerated from the state of rest in a constant gravitational field (gravitational force mg), it performs a linear motion. By applying the coordinate system in the way that the x axis indicates the direction of motion and solving the corresponding one-dimensional equation of motion, we get:We obtained, for the initial conditions, h (0) = 0The coordinate h as a function of timeThe height is directly proportional to the square of time. This can be displayed by a representation of h (t)
