Unformatted text preview: The value I obtained from my experiment typical hover very close to this number. The first five tries resulted in the following results, 9.906, 9.796, 9.701, 9.974 and 9.788 (m/s^2). 7. If there is discrepancy, what can be the possible sources for it? One main source of the slight error can stem from an inaccuracy in measuring the exact width of each pattern. 8. What effect does dropping the ruler from a higher elevation have on the acceleration? Dropping the ruler from a higher acceleration has no effect on the acceleration. Gravity is constant. 9. What is the mean time it takes the ruler to fall, according to your data? The mean time in took for the ruler to fall was .19 seconds. 10. What is the standard deviation? 11. What value of g do you get by the method 12. Comment on your results and compare them with those obtained using the photogate....
