Unformatted text preview: Ankit Patel 9-23-10 Professor Hardy Partner: Shawn Becker Physics 1 Lab Experiment #2: Free Fall Motion Objective : The objective of this experiment is to measure the rate of velocity changing with time of a free falling object to determine acceleration due to gravity. Data : The Data includes the measurements of the distance between the dots, time intervals, change in distances etc. (All included on separate Data sheet on next page.) Analysis : The Analysis includes 2 graphs which measures the instant velocity versus time and the displacement versus time. (Graph is after the Data sheet). Some points graphed on the displacement versus time graph seem to be slightly off, perhaps do to how the weight was dropped through the stamper. Discussion : In the experiment, the idea was to look for the value of “g”, which is the acceleration of gravity. This was done by letting a weight attached to a paper strip drop through a 40 Hz stamper. The average velocities are calculated by distance versus time. Instant velocity is the the same stamper....
