Question Gravity

I'm doing a project on gravity.And I will just take two objects that have the same size and shape but different weight.And I will drop them down to see what will fell first.The problem is that my teacher wants me to ask 5 questions about this project and find answers at book and online.Please help me to create questions.

Does the heavier object fall fastest?
What speed do they falll?
Does the height of where you drop them from increase/decrease the speed?
If type shape is different, will it fall faster or slower(ex.,pyramid, sphere, etc.)?
That is all I can think of, btw, this experiment was performed a long time ago, by one of those old scientists. Galileo or someone like that.

Default You are

most welcome! I just cannot remember who did that experiment. It was off of the Leaning tower of Pisa

Minnie, you amaze me with your clear thinking and ability to ask good questions (plus your age too!!!). Great job.

Another question to ask is - is there a maximum speed that objects will reach regardless of height dropped from.

As I said, I believe that some people have the ability to convey thoughts and ideas in a wat that sounds reasonable. I am glad that you think that I am a clear thinker. I wish I was better at math, though.

Math - takes lots of practice. Keep at it. Math is the foundation of a LOT of things. If you can build up enough expertise in math, you will be able to do a lot of cool things in the future.

I noticed you changed signature quote. That too shows thoughtfulness and an active mind. Keep that up and you will do great things in your life. I just know it.

Hi.

Gravity is not a force.
Einstein defined gravity as the curvature of the four dimension known as space-time.
Space-time curves due to the presence of mass. Earth’s mass is related to gravity.
In ideal conditions ….Will these objects fall faster in a bigger planet?

Oscar
