Problem statement It takes every person a while to respond to any event. For example, there is a little hold off before you make an effort to catch a ball moving towards you or seeking to catch a falling a glass from a certain elevation. This time is named your response time. There are many ways that you can evaluate your response time. A number of the methods are very easy (without calculation). One of the simplest and common ways of calculating response time is the ruler drop test. A lot of the athletes utilize this methods to assess their response time. In our engineering physics class we were asked to use this method to analyze our reaction time. For this task we were to maintain small groups and evaluate everyone's reaction time by getting 10 measurements from each college student and determine who has the fastest reaction time.
