Take a ball or something to drop. Find a high place to drop it.

You must know the weight of the ball, the height you are droping it and the time it takes to drop.

If the hieght is to big to measure with rulers then you will need some friends, a protractor and straw and a tape measure.

1) Measure your own height.

2) Get your friend to stand at height.

4) Put the protractor to your eye as well as the straw. Make sure that the protractor is straight so…
