# Gizmo free fall tower

## Gizmo’s spirited display & paint scheme in f16 fighting

Drop artifacts from the Tower of Pisa to recreate Galileo’s famous experiment. Ping pong balls, golf balls, soccer balls, and watermelons can all be dropped. Objects may be dropped with or without a parachute, in air or without air. On a speedometer and a graph, the speed of each object is shown.

### Liebherr – at icy heights

You can calculate the motion of an object in free fall with the Free-Fall Laboratory GizmoTM. Check that the Shuttlecock is selected in the CONTROLS window, that the Initial height is 3 meters, and that the Atmosphere is Air.
To see a graph of velocity vs. time, turn on the v (m/s) box. The velocity of an object refers to its speed and direction. Instantaneous velocity is another name for velocity. The shuttlecock’s velocity is negative since it is falling downward.
Calculate the following: Choose the Shuttlecock. Make sure the Starting height is 3 meters and the Atmosphere is Zero. Wait for the Shuttlecock to fall by pressing the Play button. Switch on Display numerical values under the BAR CHART tab.
Make a rule: What is the relationship between the acceleration of a falling body (a), the time it takes to fall (t), and its instantaneous velocity when it reaches the ground (v) if the acceleration is constant and the starting velocity is zero?
Find the object’s terminal velocity (vterminal) for each mass and radius combination in the charts below. To find the terminal velocity, go to the BAR CHART tab. (Hint: Allow the Display numerical values option.)

### Franz reichelt’s death jump off the eiffel tower (1912

He discovered the cratered surface of the Earth, Jupiter’s moons, and Venus’s phases, demonstrating that Venus orbits the Sun. Galileo explained the motion of falling and accelerating bodies, established the law of inertia, and correctly predicted that all bodies would fall at the same rate in a vacuum.
You and your students will drop a number of items from a tower in the Gizmo, either with or without air. You can also use parachutes to highlight the impact of air resistance even more! This Gizmo is a perfect way to learn about free fall and acceleration.
