Measuring the Velocity of Various Objects in Free Fall
After analyzing our data we discovered some information concerning the relationships between different characteristics and properties of freefall. The graph of Acceleration vs. Mass, depicted on the following page, reveals no relationship between mass and acceleration. After completion of Experiment 1.1, our data showed that objects of lighter mass fall with a greater acceleration than those of greater mass. However, when we performed Experiment 1.2, our data for the ping pong ball did not follow the same trend as our data from Experiment 1.1. Upon careful evaluation, we discovered the relationship between mass density and acceleration. Objects of great density, such as the 301 gram ball, fall with less acceleration than objects of little density such as the ping pong ball.
Experiment 2 revealed many things about acceleration. The acceleration downward is very close to the value of 'g', approximately 9.8 m/s2.
