Acceleration Due to GravityObjectives:To drop a ball from 1.0 m, 2.0 m, 3.0 m, 4.0 m, and 5.0 m and time how long it takes to hit theground. This will be tested to calculate g, which is the acceleration of the ball due to gravity.Gravity is defined as the force that a planet brings objects towards its center. Anything with masshas gravity.Procedure:For 1.0 m, use a meter stick and hold it against a wall or straight up. Grab the ball and hold it sothat the bottom of it is touching the top of the meter stick. The timer says, “on your marks, getset, go” and the ball is dropped on the word go. This is done 20 times and recorded in a table.Repeat the same steps for 2.0 m except use two meter sticks by taping them together. Use thesame process for 1.0 m. For 3.0 m, go to a staircase and tape three meter sticks together. Whileone person is at the bottom of the stairs, the other is at the top holding the taped meter sticks towhere it reaches the ground. The timer will sit on the stairs to see when the ball hits the ground,
