IB Physics: Optional Practical: Ball in a tube (copy)

In this practical the velocity of a ball falling in a tube will be measured to determine the acceleration due to gravity.What is the relationship between the height of drop and the final velocity of the ball?Independent variable: HeightDependent variable: VelocityControlled variables: nature of tube, mass and radius of ball, position of sensor.As the ball falls its PE is converted to KE. Applying the law of conservation...
