ACCESS Physics - Determination of Gravity
Select one checkbox at a time. Use the slider to see the position of an object in free-fall at any given time. The Cartesian graph shows a plot of height over time, while the illustration on the left shows absolute position (the drop without horizontal displacement). Refresh the screen to erase an attempt and move to another planet. Once you have determined the time it takes for the object to fall 100 m, you can use the equation for acceleration d = 0.5(at²) to determine the acceleration due to gravity.
