Near the surface of the earth, all objects fall with the same acceleration; after any period
of time spent falling, all objects are falling with the same speed, and have fallen the same
distance. If there's any difference in falling behavior between two objects, it's the result of
air resistance. If they fall through a region where there is no air, a feather and a battleship
fall with the same acceleration. If they're dropped side by side, they stay side by side all the
This has been known for roughly the past 500 years.
Right. The gravitational attraction is bigger, but so is the inertia in the same ratio.
No. They will hit the ground at the same time. The inertia for the heavier ball will be greater, but the acceleration for both will be the same, and both would (if the air resistance is the same for both) hit at the same time.
a foul is when you step over the black line when the floor meets the bowling lane
"The painter's brush dropped to the floor." (The painter is singular, the brush is singular.)"The painters' brush dropped to the floor." (The painters is plural, the brush is still singular.)"The painters' brushes dropped to the floor." (The painters is plural, the brushes is plural.)
If you simply release an object, the initial velocity is always zero.
When someone is hung, their neck snaps. So usually instantly, if they dropped the floor out from underneath them.
