Simulation free fall of a steel ball
Updated 29 Nov 2019
In free fall the distance fallen h is proportional to the square of the time t taken to fall that distance. The coefficient of that proportionality can be used to calculate the gravitational acceleration g.
Since the ball is not moving before it starts to fall at time t0 = 0 its initial velocity is zero, i.e. v0 = 0. Therefore the distance covered in time t is given as follows
