in a vacume they are the same obviously. this question is relative to wind factors, and the precise timing mechanics of letting them "go" out of robtic controlled arm from a dcs computer, and to verify with sensitive laser continuty sensors. This actually has to be performed in a lab, and on earth, and in a facility which the time of day, temperature in the lab, atmospheric specifications, and world global physics are recorded at the instant the two figures/objects are dropped. I hope this help you. btw you are asking a question that need real time physical experimentation. it is like asking me if i flip this coin(i.e. a penny) will i get heads or tails. You have to come up with the resources, and perform the experiment your self. In otherwords...what I am "saying" go pull an experiment.

In a vacuum, and initially in air, they would both fall at the same speed. In air though, wind resistance comes into play. The marble may reach terminal velocity at a slower speed that the Bowling ball, which has a higher mass to counteract the drag from the air. Over a long drop in air, the bowling ball would accelerate to higher speeds.

What falls faster a golf ball or ping pong ball?

In vacuum (no air) they both fall the same rate. In air, the golf ball falls faster because air resistance slows down the very light ping pong ball

What falls faster a golf ball or a table tennis ball?

The golf ball will land first. All objects fall at the same speed, but that's in a vacuum. The ping pong ball has a huge amount of drag (which is air resistance) for its weight, so it will be slowed enough for there to be a visible difference.AnswerThe golf ball will reach only a second or so before the ping pong ball. The chair will not be high enough for the ping pong ball to be considerably slowed due to air resistance.

How does a marble have more momentum then a bowling ball?

Possibly but not likely.

Which ball rolls down a slope faster a ping pong ball or a tennis ball?

If thrown at the same speed, a basketball. A basketball is heavier and will have momentum going with it while a tennis ball will have little momentum. A basketball will roll faster than most balls.

Can a ping pong ball be balanced on another ping pong ball?

no , it cannot

A boy fires a spring-loaded Ping-Pong ball gun Briefly compare the forces and impulses on the gun and the ball Which has more momentum which moves faster?

The spring hits the ball with an action, and the ball hits the spring with an equal but opposite reaction. Since the ball has more momentum, it moves faster.

Which will fall faster a feather or ping pong ball if dropped in a vacuum?

Both will fall at the same time in vacuum because there is no resistance.
