In this free fall experiment we measured the acceleration due to gravity. We were
able to do this by dropping a picket fence through a photogate and observing the
time intervals between the leading edges of its stripes. After measuring the distance
betwee
For our 1D Dynamics lab, we used Mathematica software to study air resistance and
terminal velocity. By modifying some Mathematica codes to reflect the proper
formulas for free fall with viscous quadratic damping, we were able to study the

In our Conservation of Angular Momentum lab, we used our lab equipment to study
and observe the moment of inertia of a system. After giving a platter an initial
rotational velocity, we then added a second object (platter, bar, or ring) and observed
