Chapter-3Falling Objects and Projectile Motion

Overview:

Explore how objects move under the influence of gravity close to the surface of the earth.

Outline:

Acceleration due to gravity

Falling object

Projectile motion

Falling Objects

Why objects fall to the ground when released?

When you drop objects of different sizes and weights, do they reach the ground at the same time?

Measuring the acceleration due to gravity for Earth: 9.8 m/s2

Throwing up a ball:Velocity and Distance

Q: A ball is thrown straight upward and then returns to the Earth. Does the acceleration change during this motion?
