Unformatted text preview: falling object on earth if there is no air resistance. With air resistance there is drag in relation to surface area and mass. Acceleration would be lower with a bigger object that has more area to be affected by air resistance. Conclusion: This experiment shows how to measure acceleration of a falling object, much more accurately than by hand. I can see firsthand how 9.8m/s^2 is the acceleration of gravity. Since the measurements werent done by hand the percent error is very low. d(mm) t^2 16mm ball 0.58 1.67 0.544 1.47 0.504 1.27 0.462 1.07 0.416 0.97 Distanc e (mm) Time (s) d(mm) t^2 19mm ball 0.58 1.67 0.544 1.47 0.504 1.27 0.46 1.07 0.415 0.97 Distanc e (mm) Time (s)...
