(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Create a lab to find the gradational constant of the earth.

2. Relevant equations

a = d/(t^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

Just a general question. If you drop a object (air resistance negligible) and you know the t initial is 0 and you know the t final is w/e you get on your stop watch. You do d/t to get average velocity of the fallen object.

Now that you have the avrg velocity you know the V initial is zero and the speed rises to the avrg velocity, can you assume that a = V avrg / t?

Im in IB physics HL but just cant get my head around this one for some reason....
