Unformatted text preview: Percent Error= 1.3201 x 9.8 m/s^2/9.8 m/s^2=1.3201 Conclusion: If the glider starts from rest, the distance it travels is given by the formula therefore the above theory is proven true. The acceleration due to gravity is 10.5608m/s 2 with a percent error of 1.3201%. Sources of error that may cause this percent error are inaccurate measure of time, inaccurate measure of distance, and inaccurate measurements of height....
