Problem 13E

The acceleration g due to gravity is estimated by dropping an object and measuring the time it takes to travel a certain distance. Assume the distance s is known to be exactly 2.2 m. The time is measured to be t= 0.67 ± 0.02 s. Estimate g, and find the relative uncertainty in the estimate. (Note that g = 2s/t2.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer:

Step 1 of 3:  

            Given the acceleration g due to gravity is estimated by dropping an object and measuring the time it takes to travel a certain distance.

            Given the values are,

                                     The distance is s = 2.2 m  

                                             Time t = .

        Here we know that …..(1)
