PRACTICAL: DETERMINE ACCELERATION DUE TO GRAVITY WITH A TICKER TIMER

APPARATUS:

Ticker timer and mass attached to tape.

PROCEDURE:

Teacher will demonstrate method of dropping a mass attached to a ticker tape through a ticker timer. Divide the tape into five-tick lengths. Calculate for each length the average speed of the tape. Plot v-t to check whether the acceleration was uniform. Use two tapes to calculate the acceleration of the mass and compare it with the accepted value of g.
