jakeb168 Posted October 2, 2014 Share Posted October 2, 2014 BREAKING NEWS recently three students, Mike Belmont, Zach Haight, and Jake Barnes have found acceleration by gravity ina series of steps including using meter sticks to determine the height from the ball too the ground from the cieling of a classroom. by doing so they measured the time it took for the ball to hit the ground and also measured in metersthe height of the ball off the ground. they determined the acceleration by using a formula to determine distance and used conversions to find the acceleration of 8.98 meters per seconds squared. we can use this to determine acceleration on earth due to gravity. the percent error was 8.48 percent from the actual acceleration of 9.81 meters per second squared. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
