  Gravity Lab What is the effect on an object's weight, size, and shape on how fast it falls to the ground due to gravity? Introduction: It is a common observation and point of knowledge that gravity pulls objects down.  Newton quantified this observation in the 17th century with his theory of gravity. This lab will determine which characteristics of an object are important with regard to how they are affected  by gravity. This is an interesting problem because gravity is constantly at work in our world, and it will be useful to understand how it acts on different types of common objects. With your group, list 10 different objects that you would like to use in this lab. List these objects  below along with who is responsible for bringing them. 1. 6. 2. 7. 3. 8. 4. 9. 5. 10. Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen when you drop these objects?) Procedure: 1.) Measure a height above the ground that all of the objects will be dropped from. 2.) Choose three time takers in charge of the stop watches. 3.) Drop the objects one by one from the specified height and time how long it takes for them to hit the ground 4.) Make sure you have several measurements for each object so that you can take averages later. 5.) Calculate the acceleration due to gravity from data Data: Height from which objects were dropped: Object: Mass(g) Time to drop 1: Time to drop 2: Time 3: Average time:   Conclusion: Did all objects take the same amount of time to drop? Which ones dropped faster, which slower? What characteristics affected how long it took objects to hit the ground? Why? What other stuff is going on? Does gravity act differently on different objects? Why or Why not? What else could be acting on the objects? Is there anything else affecting the objects' speed? Which objects were most affected? What are situations in real life where this occurs? Is it good, or bad? What types of things are done to help minimize it?
