What is the acceleration due to gravity?

  • #1

Homework Statement



To measure the acceleration due to gravity on a distant planet, an astronaut hangs a 0.055-kg ball from the end of a wire. The wire has a length of 1.5 m and a linear density of 3.1 multiplied by 10-4 kg/m. Using electronic equipment, the astronaut measures the time for a transverse pulse to travel the length of the wire and obtains a value of 0.085 s. The mass of the wire is negligible compared to the mass of the ball. Determine the acceleration due to gravity.
