Creating a Position vs. Time Graph using Stop Motion Photography

By Flipping Physics, 05/22/2014
We talk about a lot of graphs in the theoretical sense. In this video we are actually going to create a position versus time graph in a real sense. By using stop motion photography and stopping a ball at various intervals while falling, we will create a position as a function of time graph.
