Compare the slope of the velocity-time graph to the average of all your acceleration values. Are they close? What does the slope of a velocity (or speed) vs. time graph mean? Explain the answer using your data. How does the value of g that you calculated compare to the accepted value of 9.80 m/s2? What is your percent error? Remember that the value of g can be calculated by using g = a/sinθ and percent error can be calculated using the following equation: %error=[measured value - accepted vale/ accepted value ]* 100
