Additional Info

  • ID Code: C4-34
  • Purpose: Show that the acceleration of bodies in free fall is independent of mass
  • Description: Light and heavy balls are weighed using the spring scale. When they are dropped simultaneously from a height of about ten feet, they accelerate downward at the same rate (the acceleration of gravity) and reach the floor at the same time. A wooden board acts as a sound board to amplify the sound when they reach the floor.
