Transcript of Gravity
Our objective was to verify the gravitational constant.
taught how to measure gravitational constant
find a place to drop your objects from
measure the height from the ground and record it
drop each object from that spot 10x and record the time it takes to hit the ground
Issac Newton- Scientist who first discovered gravity, still very little known.
Einstein- built on Issac's words and fully explained gravity.
Theory of relativity- Einstein's explanation of relativity.

If the golf ball is dropped from the same height as the tennis ball then it should take the same time to reach the concrete due to the same gravitational force.

The purpose of this lab was to measure the gravitational constant.
In the beginning of this experiment we hypothesized that any any object dropped from the same height would land at the same time.
After coming to an end of our experiment we found out many human errors which affected our hypothesis. Tennis ball: 9.7 % of total error and for the golf ball we had a total of 33.7% error.
