Golf Ball Lab • Purpose: To analyze the motion of a dropped golf ball. • Apparatus • Data: Position (cm) of the ball second. 1 th every 60 of a Analysis • Measure the distance each dot is from the origin. Record in Data Table. Time (s) Distance (m) Vavg (m/s) • Calculate the Average Velocity during each time interval. Record in Data Table. • Plot a Velocity vs. Time Graph for your data and determine the slope of the line. Conclusion • What was the Average Acceleration of the Golf Ball for its fall? • What was the % error for your acceleration? – % error = ((M – A) / A) * 100 • Discuss reasons why you obtained that % error.
