The equation of distance as a function of time for a freely falling object is described, according to theory, by the equation:

since (vi=0 , yi=0)

y(t)= yi+vt*t+1/2*g*t2

Use the table for :

• make a plot of y(t) vs t2  , and then calculate the slope in order to find g (the acceleration due to gravity, which is  9.8 m/s2)
•  find Slope =  Δy / Δt2
• g =
check_circle

Step 1

Plot the distance y(t) along y-axis and t2 along ...
