Vernier Projectile Motion Lab
A lab activity to determine the acceleration due to gravity for an object in projectile motion. Here is the link to the program:
and here is a video (you will need to scroll down a little to get to the video) that explains how to use the program (start at 1:30 on the video in order to skip the registration information):
Then select the "Basketball Shot" sample video and determine the magnitude of the acceleration from both the vertical position versus time graph and the horizontal position versus time graph. Write down your results rounded to 1 decimal place and then combine them to get the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity and submit the results along with your graphs (screen shots or print outs) and with three major sources of error.
Here is a link to the user manual in case it is needed:
