LAB #6 Acceleration Due to Gravity Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate uniform acceleration during free fall and to measure the magnitude of this acceleration. Apparatus : A level, a computer with two photogate triggers will be used as a timing and data collecting device for this experiment. Use the two gate (with acceleration) -2 software application The two photogates are mounted on the aluminum free fall apparatus. These photogates are connected to the computer through a ULI timer. The timer measures three times for each run: the time for which the first gate is blocked off by the falling cylinder (t 1 ), the time for which the second gate is blocked off by the falling mass (t 3 ), and the time between the unblocking of the first gate and the start of blocking the second gate (t 2 ). You will also need a meter stick, brass cylinder, Al cylinder and a catch box . Your instructor will give you a brief demonstration of the “Jack Crow Memorial” free fall apparatus. CAUTION
