In a physics laboratory the value of g , the gravitational acceleration in the vicinity of Earth, has been measured accurately by projecting a ball up an evacuated tube and electronically timing the passage of the ball in its upward and downward flight through two light beams, an accurately known distance 's' apart. [/B]
If the successive times of passage through the beams are: t0 ,t1 ,t2 ,and t3, express 'g' in terms of 's' and the times of the passage of the ball.
Fnet = ma
The Attempt at a Solution
I believe that Newton's 2nd law: Fnet = ma is imperative to solving this problem but I am not exactly sure how. Can anyone answer this problem?[/B]
