Unformatted text preview: SE QUESTIONS (Form B)
The student can use these data for distance D and time t to produce a second graph from which the acceleration g
due to gravity can be determined.
(b) If only the variables D and t are used, what quantities should the student graph in order to produce a linear
relationship between the two quantities?
(c) On the grid below, plot the data points for the quantities you have identified in part (b), and sketch the best
straight-line fit to the points. Label your axes and show the scale that you have chosen for the graph. (d) Using the slope of your graph in part (c), calculate the acceleration g due to gravity in this experiment.
(e) State one way in which the student could improve the accuracy of the results if the experiment were to be
performed again. Explain why this would improve the accuracy. © 2006 The College Board. All rights reserved.
