Unformatted text preview: Sean Larson ID# 21792768 Physics Section 12 10/4/07 Experiment 2: A Measurement of Acceleration Due to Gravity Introduction : The main purpose of the experiment is to measure the acceleration of an object due to gravity, which can be done by using a free fall unit. There are different equations that are going to be used during this experiment, and they consist of Force= Mass * Acceleration, Velocity= Δ Distance / Δ Time, and Slope= Δ Velocity / Δ Time. Acceleration is normally represented by the letter g. There are two types of mass, the first is the amount of matter a particular body contains, the other mass is known as gravitational mass, which is the gravitational force between two bodies. Procedure : To collect the data that is going to be used, a free fall unit must be used. This free fall unit consists of a spark timer, circuit, electromagnet, spark-tape, and the front and back wire....
