-Define free fall.
-Understand that the acceleration due to gravity on earth is 9.8 m/s2 and an object in free fall is constantly experiencing this acceleration.
-Using kinematic equations, be able to calculate the initial velocity, final velocity, displacement, or time elapsed of an object in free fall.
free fall - an object in motion only under the influence of the force of gravity.
The Physics in Motion teacher toolkit provides instructions and answer keys for study questions, practice problems, labs for all seven units of study. GPB offers the teacher toolkit at no cost to Georgia educators. It will be available in September 2018. To preorder your teacher toolkit, complete and submit this form to request the teacher toolkit. You only need to submit this form one time to get materials for all seven units of study.
