Homework Help: Physics lab

Posted by Gray on Monday, September 22, 2008 at 7:54pm.

During a lab, we dropped a ball from the second story of our school and found out the distance, ave. time, ave. velocity, final velocity and the acceleration.

One of the questions is: If we could redo this experiment from a 300 ft radio tower instead of from the second story at our school, would the results be more or less accurate? Why?

So I was going to say that the results from the tower would not be more accurate because the ball would hit terminal velocity before it hits the ground. But would this make it less accurate? or the same? please help. THANKS!
