Breaking news students at Irondequoit high school have discovered acceleration due to gravity to be around 10.8 meters/Second. The way it was calculated was we took a two meter stick along with a one meter stick at the bottom. We measured it from the bottom of the gator skin ball to the floor and having read 2.56 meters. From there we calculated the amount of time it took the ball to hit the ground. With three trial the students received an average of .687 seconds. From there the students calculated the Accelerating by d/.5t2=a by substituting 2.56 meters for d, and .687 seconds for t. after calculations they arrived at their answer of 10.8 meters per second with only s percent error of 10.1%
