New and Improved Kinematics and Gravity Lab.


Recommended Posts

New Kinematics and Gravity Lab:

In this new lab we will perform the experiment outside. We could either use a rescue window or go out to the turf and drop the ball from a higher place. In this example you and your group will go out to the bleachers. You will need a stop watch, a ball and a tape measure. To begin the lab you need to calculate the distance from the bleachers to the ground. Using the stop watch, time how long it takes the ball to travel to the ground. You will need to repeat this multiple times to get an accurate representation. After using the information you collected, determine the acceleration of the ball. This new and improved lab will be more fun for the students and cause there to be less marginal error.
