Experiment # 1: Basic measurements
Object: Perform basic measurements of length, mass, angle, and, indirectly, time. Gain understanding of concepts such as average, deviation, percent average deviation, and percent error.
Experiment # 2: Acceleration in Free Fall
Object: To measure the acceleration of a particle on free-fall (i.e. neglecting air effects), when released near the surface of the earth, and compare our measurement with the accepted value of 980 cm/s2 or 9.80 m/s2 (Commonly referred as “g”).
