PhyFl18SS3.3.30 This is our class data from dropping the basketball from a the ceiling in the room (considered a small height) Small heights are any height where the time of fall is less than 1 second. The MAJOR problem with this time data is that it reduces down to 1 sig fig after you take into account the human reaction time (±0.15sec). One sig fig data is the death sentence in science. NOBODY will believe you.
