Homework Help: Physics EE on Terminal Velocity

  1. Nov 27, 2004 #1
    Hi Guys,
    I am doing a physics ee on the terminal velocity. So I am going to drop a spherical object into a graduating cylinder which has a really wide diameter and is relatively tall. Now the problem is that I have to measure the time taken between a fixed vertical distance. I have to measure the time when the ball (which I drop) passes the lower limit.
    Can you help me please?
    you can email me at tse1417@yahoo.com
    Please help
    Thanks a lot,

    Ok it's probably not called that but it sounds cooler, something that emitts a ray which is broken your school should have it
