Investigating Gravity: Predicting Time to Hit the Ground

Investigating Gravity: Predicting Time to Hit the Ground

This physics activity is a projectile motion / gravity investigation where students drop and shoot (horizontally) soft balls from different heights and record the time taken to hit the ground. Students make a trendline to predict the time it will take the ball to hit the ground from a certain height. Students will also discover that shot and dropped balls hit the ground at the same time.
