This very interactive video lesson uses the Simple Pendulum experiment to enable students to answer the fundamental question: What is the value of g in my school and in my home? Students will learn to calculate this value by working in ...

Strobe of a Falling Ball

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 8 years ago | 00:00:41 | 46013 views

A ball is dropped in front of a meter stick and lit by a strobe light. A long exposure photograph captures the position of the ball at each evenly spaced flash of light. The acceleration of the ball can then be measured from the photo. ...
