Lab 1: Kinematics Post lab 1. Why did we do these two experiments (what was our goal)? What was learned from these experiments? a. This experiment was to show us hands on experience of kinematics. It was able to show us the details of how an object moves. In addition, we wanted to show the acceleration in the horizontal direction is independent from the acceleration in the vertical direction. In this experiment, I was able to learn how to calculate acceleration and velocity of an object. It was unique to see something slowed down and be able to calculate how fast something moved in 30-second frames. Also being able to test out gravity and see how past physicists derived g was a great learning experience. 2. Was your value for g different from the accepted value? If so, was it larger in magnitude or smaller? What could account for this difference? a. I was shocked that the differences were quite small of .1 and only smaller in magnitude. Several human errors were rounding could have accounted
