Abstract

CORVELONI, E.P. Moraes et al. Use of digital camera (multi-burst) for experiments in kinematics - free fall. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.3, pp. 3504.1-3504.4. ISSN 1806-1117.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1806-11172009000300010.

In this work we used a digital camera, with multi-burst function (photos taken in sequence) to analise the free fall motion and with the data obtained calculate the value of the local acceleration of gravity. To evaluate the experiment, was also calculated a theoretical value for the local acceleration of gravity. By comparing with that obtained experimentally, it was possible to observe a small deviation. That showed that the digital camera can be a good tool to aid pedagogical in the teaching of physics.

Keywords : free fall; acceleration of gravity; digital camera.
