Three Balls Falling

M.9.4 Three balls Falling

Three balls (steel, wood, and ping-pong) are suspended from a platform. As they are released, they are illuminated with a repeating strobe of known frequency. The result can be video taped with Video Point Capture. This software can be used to make measurements and analyze the motion of each ball as a function of time. A sample is shown to the right.
