Zero gravity in space: A look at the experience of Astronauts

APPARENT WEIGHTLESSNESS A frequent misunderstanding by many people today is that astronauts experience zero gravity especially when referring to astronauts in space. Many believe astronauts are weightless in space and that justifies their ability to float and travel through space. However, physics has proven this statement inaccurate and astronauts only weight about 10% less in …

An experiment on time and velocity: A study of the acceleration rate of an object

Acceleration experimented with the velocity and time of a falling object to produce a reasonable calculation for the acceleration due to gravity of Earth. The experiment was divided into parts, each with a specific procedure to determine the acceleration due to gravity. Both parts, however, required a basic photogate, an instrument that maintained a constant …
