Problem 1: Estimation (see section 1.10 in course notes)
In a recent publication of Nature, Australian scientists determined that during the last ice age
(22,000 to 19,000 years ago) the sea level reached its low point, 425 to 440 feet below the

Problem 1. Measurement of g.
a) The ball moves in the vertical direction under the inuence of the constant force of gravity1 . Hence in our approximation the ball undergoes onedimensional motion with constant accele
Problem 1 (measurement of g)
The acceleration of gravity can be measured by projecting a body upward and measuring the
time that it takes to pass two given points in both directions. Suppose a friend throw a ball
straight up outside your window. You measu
