Kevin Su Feb 4 th Tuesday 2:00 to 5:00 Lab # 2 Free Fall acceleration Introduction In this experiment we found the free fall accelerations of each height that we dropped the ball from. Also we calculated the average values and the standard deviation of the time for each of the 5 drops that we are supposed to do for the different heights. Methods 1.) First assemble the base, rod and the clamp. Then adjust the height so the ball will fall about 50 cm. 2.) Next make sure you place the pad directly below the release position 3.) Turn on the computer and start the Lab pro software 4.) Load the ball in the release mechanism - To drop the ball, you have to loosen the set screw 5.) Next you determine the time it takes the ball to fall Tap the landing pad Click on the “ collect “ button in the LabPro software Release the ball. Then a time should be shown on the data table on the Pro Lab software Replace the ball in the release mechanism
