La aceleracton gravitactonal g se obtiene directamenoo recurriendo

I al concepto de caida libre. Una de las ecuactones basicas de la

cinematica, que relactona esta constanoo g con la altura 11" a la que se

lioora un objeto y con el tiempo -t- que este tarda en caer at suelo, es:

I h = vot+ (l/2)gt2,

donde va representa la velocidad inicial del objeto. Sin embargo, como

I esoo desciende en caida libre, su veloctdad inidal es cero. Siendo a51, la

e<:uadon anterior se reduce a la siguiente forma:

I g = 2h/t2.

Cronometrando el tiempo que tardan diversos objetos, de distintos

(5)

podemos determinar g recurriendo a la e<:.(S). En una serie de pruebas

que se hideron en dias pasados en el 1.T.E.SM. campus Cd. Juarez, se

L liberaron una bOla de madera, una esferita de acero y una pelota de
