I have heard of "failures" of the experiment when the teacher uses one
photogate and tries to use the diameter of the ball as delta-x. This is
tough with a round ball because you cannot guarantee the center of the
ball will go through the beam, plus photo gates suffer from a sort of
parallax that makes objects appear thinner than they really are. So
don't use one gate.
