Experiment #6-FREE FALL

FALLING BODIES
OBJECTIVES:
1.To describe how the velocity and acceleration of an object change over time when falling under the influence of gravity and to explain why such changes are observed. 2. To determine gravitational acceleration by studying the velocity of a falling object as a function of time.

INTRODUCTION:
Everything on Earth is under the influence of it’s gravitational field keeping us from jumping of respected measure high.Along with this things that are on Earth,there are objects that are soon to be on Earth’s surface,falling objects have certain interactions with Earth’s gravity.Air resistance is a factor of free-falling objects.Since Earth has an atmosphere,the speed of

To accelerate at 10 m/s/s means to change your velocity by 10 m/s each second.

This is the formula that we can use for the acceleration of a falling object.

MATERIALS:
●Building with more than one floor-second floor,third floor,fourth,and towards.)
●Blueprint of the Building
●Objects/things to be dropped off.(Crumpled paper ball,Stone,ball,etc.)
●Stopwatch

PROCEDURE:
1.Find a building with more than one floor.
2.With the use of the building’s blueprint,you can the exact measure of the building so you would nothing to worry about measuring it’s height.
3.In doing the experiment,atleast one member of the group will stay and remain outside the building,holding a stopwatch-to take charge for

DATA AND RESULTS: OBJECT | TRIAL 1 | TRIAL 2 | TRIAL 3 | | Time | Mass | Acceleration | Time | Mass | Acceleration | Time | Mass | Acceleration | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

As mentioned in Lesson 5, a free-falling object is an object that is falling under the sole influence of gravity.
