					I.Title: Picket Fence Free Fall

II. Introduction

A. Research Question;

       (1) What does a displacement as a function of time falling tell you about an object in free fall?
       (2) What does a velocity as a function of time falling tell you about an object in free fall?
       (3) What does acceleration as a function of time falling tell you about an object in free fall?
       (4) What is the acceleration due to gravity in Stowe Vermont?

B. Relevance


III. Method: Use a labeled diagram to describe the procedure.

IV. Results: see next page

V. CALCULATIONS / Conclusions:


  1. Complete a table of calculations showing the displacement, time elapsed, average
       velocity, average time associated with the velocity, average acceleration vs. average time
       asscociated with the acceleration using excel.
  2. Calculate the average acceleration from all of your calculated values of
       acceleration.
  3. Using excel or data studio generate position as a function of time graph, velocity as a function of
      time graph, and acceleration as a function of time graph.
   4. Answer the research questions.
           Use the spreadsheet found in Groups AP 1011
