Possible reasons for a deviation from the accepted value for acceleration due to grav

  1. Nov 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Possible reasons for a deviation from the accepted value for acceleration due to gravity in a vacuum are


    2. Relevant equations

    No real relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    • Wind
    • Atmospheric pressure
    • Air density
    • Shape of the objects
    • Size of the objects
    • Surface area of the objects
    • Material of the objects
    • Magnetic and Electric interaction from different forces (has very relative little impact)

    the problems specifically says that it is in vacuum, so wind, air density and such is a no go :)
