While we were high in sky on the Zero-G plane in June 2018, we carried out an experiment to see how a squash ball would accelerate in different gravity levels.  The Zero-G plane flies a series of parabolas (or arcs) in the sky to simulate reduced gravity inside the plane.  Check out this video which walks you through how we calculated the actual g-level in the plane during a parabola, using projectile motion equations.
