# How do you find the acceleration of a free fall graph?

## How do you find the acceleration of a free fall graph?

Observe that the line on the graph is a straight, diagonal line. As learned earlier, a diagonal line on a velocity versus time graph signifies an accelerated motion. Since a free-falling object is undergoing an acceleration (g = 9,8 m/s/s, downward), it would be expected that its velocity-time graph would be diagonal.

## How do you find the acceleration of a free-falling object?

Estimate the radius of the planet, from its center to its surface, in meters. Divide the total mass by radius squared. Multiply the result by the universal Gravitational constant, 6.67×10-11 N·m2·kg-2. The result is the gravitational force of the planet, which is also its free fall acceleration.

**How the acceleration due to gravity g can be determined from the graph free fall motion?**

The acceleration due to gravity is found by determining the slope of the velocity vs. time graph. Hence, the velocity is given by the slope of the tangent to the distance vs. time curve.

**What is the free fall formula?**

vf = g * t where g is the acceleration of gravity. The value for g on Earth is 9.8 m/s/s. The above equation can be used to calculate the velocity of the object after any given amount of time when dropped from rest.

### What is the acceleration at maximum height?

9.8 m/s2

At maximum height, the acceleration becomes equal to g = 9.8 m/s2.

### What is the acceleration of an object when it reaches maximum height?

zero

At a projectile’s highest point, its acceleration is zero.

**What is acceleration graph?**

The acceleration time graph is the graph that is used to determine the change in velocity in the given interval of the time.

**Where the acceleration due to gravity is maximum?**

the poles

The acceleration sue to gravity is maximum at the poles.

#### Does acceleration due to gravity increase with height?

The acceleration due to gravity decreases with increase in altitude from the surface of the earth.
