Unformatted text preview: might accidentally throw it down lightly without realizing it, adding initial velocity (v0) so that means it takes shorter time to reach the floor, therefore makes our estimation of the building incorrectly. The average value we found for the balcony height was 4.979 meters. I think this is close to the true value because we did a lot of trials to get the timing as accurate as we wanted, so its close to 5.00 meters so I think its accurate. If I was to do this experiment again, I would try some ball that is heavier because to reduce air resistance. Also, we will try to drop it when the ball is at rest so that we wont have to worry about the factor of initial velocity involves in the experiment. Because we didnt have enough time to do 100 trials, next time I would do more trials to get more accurate time and reduce the outlier in the data set. AVG time= 1.00812 (s)...
