    Hi, for my physics coursework I have been measuring g in different ways. To find a value for g using a free fall method I plotted s against t^2, however my line of best fit does not go through the origin, and I have to explain why? I think it has something to do with uncertainties, any help would be appreciated!!!

    How precise is the apparatus that you used? Did you get any anomalies?
