When the switch is pressed, the ball is dropped and the time of fall is measured for various balls. The graph shows height vs time-squared data for the 1 inch steel ball and the large hollow plastic ball. The slope of the line (equal to 1/2 g) gives an acceleration for the steel ball of 9.79 m/s2. Note that the acceleration of the large hollow ball is considerably smaller and that its data is not linear.
