What is heavier a pound of feathers or a pound of rocks?
A pound of rocks on earth (not in a vacuum) is slightly heavier than a pound of feathers; this is because ‘rocks’ obviously have a higher density than ‘feathers’, assuming the feathers are loosely held and not tightly packed. Neither is heavier ’cause they all have the same weight.
What falls faster a brick or a feather?
Galileo discovered that objects that are more dense, or have more mass, fall at a faster rate than less dense objects, due to this air resistance. A feather and brick dropped together. Air resistance causes the feather to fall more slowly.
What would fall first a feather or a rock?
If you drop a feather and a rock at the same time, you know the rock will hit the ground first and the feather will fall much slower.
Will something heavier hit ground first?
In other words, if two objects are the same size but one is heavier, the heavier one has greater density than the lighter object. Therefore, when both objects are dropped from the same height and at the same time, the heavier object should hit the ground before the lighter one.
Does weight matter falling?
The ‘weight’ of an object is the force acting on it. That is just proportional to q, the charge. Since what matters for the falling rate is q/m, the weight will have no definite relation to rate of fall.
Is there acceleration in free fall?
Freefall is a special case of motion with constant acceleration, because acceleration due to gravity is always constant and downward. This is true even when an object is thrown upward or has zero velocity.
What is the max speed a human can fall?
Near the surface of the Earth, an object in free fall in a vacuum will accelerate at approximately 9.8 m/s2, independent of its mass. With air resistance acting on an object that has been dropped, the object will eventually reach a terminal velocity, which is around 53 m/s (190 km/h or 118 mph) for a human skydiver.
