Taking different weighted objects and dropping them from a certain height to measure the gravitational acceleration on each object that acts on Earth’s gravity. This is done by using the experimental free fall method and learning the processes of this method. Procedure: Part1. The lab group broke into two, two down stairs on the ground and the other two up on the third floor stair well. A tape measure was then dropped down to the other team members and the height of the building was measured. Next two small objects were dropped ( rubber stopper, waffle ball) intermit of each other, at the same time a stop watch was recording the time of the objects at rest to when they hit the ground. This data was thin recorded onto a note pad. This process was then repeated ten times on each object. The lab members regrouped with the data and then in putted the information into the Graphical Analysis program to where a line graph
