An application of free fall (DE) model to industry

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Could someone tell me an application of the model of free fall to industry or more generally by using newton's second law and the law of gravitation, construct a model similar to the free fall one, that has an application in industry

Thank you so much

Hi again, maybe this application is too simple. Is there any other application in which newton's laws of motion and the gravitational force are involved? For example, my teacher told me that one application could be elevators, but I need another one.

...one application could be elevators...
I wouldn't want to be in a freely falling elevator!
However, if your teacher considers an elevator a valid example, then a parachute is equally valid.

Pretty much everything.

Instead of the elevator consider either mechanical clocks driven by falling weights or balance trams . Both are easy to understand the working of but have some interesting physics to explore as well .
