Oh, you don't like t=

Hi Tapl=
ers,
TA meet=
ing within 2 hours, and I need to come up with more simple suggestions, for=
measuring g.
This is=
a make your own, and discuss it ,and report on it, type lab for pre-meds e=
tc.
Possibl=
e Expts:
1. Pend=
ulum
2. Ball=
/mass drop: One student drops the mass, and 2 or 3 others, independen=
tly of each other, operate timers, then average their results.
3. Toy =
cars coasting down inclined plane.
