Acceleration Due to Gravity

Acceleration Due to Gravity


In this packet we will look at acceleration due to gravity. We will define what the terms free fall and g mean. Finally we will apply gravity to the equations relating displacement, velocity, acceleration, and time.

In this packet I review why acceleration due to gravity is important to us and how to use it to help solve free fall problems.
