Free fall lab

The Big Misconception A free falling object is an object that is falling under the sole influence of gravity. Any object that is being acted upon only by the force of gravity is said to be in a state of free fall.

The velocity time graph is in a straight line, meaning it was going at a constant acceleration. It was heading in a positive direction refer to graph 1.

The relationship between the change in velocity and elapsed time was that the velocity increases constantly as the time increases therefore they were proportionate. The slope of the velocity time graph was accelerating 6. The velocity position graph refer to graph 2 was curved because changing velocity means change in slope.

The change in velocity of an object in free fall was directly proportional to the displacement. It is directly proportional to the time. This was because as time increases, velocity changed at a constant rate. Due to change in velocity, there was a change in displacement.

Errors After performing the experiment, several errors were noted. One error might be in the calculations in Table 1. The anticipated error was that the numbers would have been rounded and not completely accurate. A random error that occurred was that one group member released the object not in synchronization with the ticker timer which may have hindered the process of dots being recorded on the tape.

Conclusion I concluded that the velocity time graph did go in a straight line. My hypothesis was only partially correct. Instead of the acceleration being 9.PHYSICS Acceleration of Gravity Lab (Picket Fence) Object: Object in Free Fall We say an object is in free fall when the only force acting on it is the earth’s gravitational force.

Special Events

No other forces can be acting; in particular, air resistance must be either absent or Also please refer to the identically named section in your lab.

Physics 1 Lab #4 Topic: Free Fall Purpose: To investigate the motion of freely falling objects and to calculate the acceleration of gravity. Equipment: Free Fall Timing apparatus Method: I.

Free Fall: The apparatus has three parts, connected electronically.

The first part is the ball release mechanism. This is a U-shaped part that holds a steel.

The distance d 1, is described by the equation of free fall: d 1 = v o t + (a g t 2)/2 In covering the distance from A to C, the tape took a time exactly twice as long, 2t, and fell a distance d 2 described (on substituting 2t for t and simplifying) by the equation.
