Verification of the Gravitational Equivalence Principles Using Video Modeling
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 5:15PM - 6:00PM
  Author: Carolina Galvis, Grupo de Física / Gimnasio La Montaña
  Co-Author(s): Mauricio Mendivelso-Villaquirán
  Abstract: Some gravitational experiments need special conditions that are not available in the classroom (i.e. low friction, low air drag force or absence of gravitational field). Following video analysis by Persson and Hagen (Phys. Educ. 46,12) we verify the weak equivalence principle in our classroom. In addition, we verify the strong equivalence principle using the same technique and a low-cost experimental setup.
