Physics 211: Lecture 2, Pg 4 1-D Free-Fall 1-D Free-Fall This is a nice example of constant acceleration (gravity): In this case, acceleration is caused by the force of gravity: Usually pick y -axis “upward” Acceleration of gravity is “down” : y a y = - g y 0y v = v - gt 2 y 0 0 t g 2 1 t v y y - + = y a v t t t g a y - =

Physics 211: Lecture 2, Pg 5 Gravity facts: Gravity facts: g does not depend on the nature of the material! Galileo (1564-1642) figured this out without fancy clocks & rulers! On the surface of the earth, gravity acts to give a constant acceleration Nominally, g = 9.81 m/s 2 At the equator g = 9.78 m/s 2 At the North pole g = 9.83 m/s 2 More on gravity in a few lectures!
