OBJECTIVE 1. 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. THEORY If 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) = 0 The coordinate h as a function of time The height is directly proportional to the square of time. This can be displayed by a representation of h (t)
