gravity=(is)weight+force of gravity=down+up=falling+rising
Debate Rounds (5)
a little feather falls more slow then a bowling ball
because there is down there is up, becasue if there isnt down the thing dosnt fall
when the force of gravity applies to an object, up is the cause of Down, when the force of gravity dosnt apply, Down is the cause of down
wind flow goes out at the top of my window, and comes in at the bottom
if a cup cake falls from a tree, how far is it from down?
Pro has stated that a feather moves "more slow" than a bowling ball, due to "down" and "up" of some sort caused by differences in mass. However, it is not a necessary fact that a bowling ball moves faster than a feather. Consider a stationary bowling ball, and a moving feather. The feather is moving faster than the bowling ball. In the context of free fall, a feather on Earth falls more slowly than a bowling ball due to the force of air resistance. However, this is not due to the mass of the two objects. This can be proven experimentally by dropping two objects of varying mass at the same time in absence of significant air resistance, such as on the Moon. This experiment was performed on the Apollo 15 mission to the moon, and confirmed that gravity is not due to mass and the difference is fall rate on Earth is therefore due to air resistance.
on earth, an object i let go of that dosnt fall means it has no weight, you cant weigh it on a mechanical scale if its not going down, like a little feather in the wind
down is weight, falling is down, not up.
if the little feather turned into metal mid air it would fall.
weight=force of gravity+down
force of gravity=weight+up
if it dosnt go down it has no weight, or the force of gravity dosnt apply
on the moon there is hardly any difference in weight, and without weight an object dosnt fall at all, and the further an object falls on earth is the more weight it has
the more weight is the more force of gravity, becasue the application of the force of gravity ceases to apply at no weight, no up and down for an object
If an object at rest does not move when you let go of it, i.e. if it has no acceleration, we learn from Newtonian mechanics that that is due to a lack of net force on the object. However, it is entirely possible that although an object has no net force acting on it, it has a gravitational force acting on it (a weight) that is balanced by another force. For example, I have a computer on my desk. My computer has a weight, that is, a gravitational force acting upon it, however the normal force from the table cancels out the gravitational force causing my computer to stay where it is.
"Down" and "up" are directions, not forces in physics.
The reason a feather in the wind stays in the air is because the wind is acting as a force against gravity. A feather is very susceptible to air resistance and the force exerted by the wind. Metal of the same mass, density, size, and shape of a feather would behave exactly like a feather when in free fall or when blowing in the wind.
Any time you have two objects of mass, there is a force of gravity between them in accordance to the law of universal gravitation I described previously. If there is no acceleration, it must be that some other force or collection of forces is balancing out the gravitational force. If the object has acceleration contrary to that given to it by the force of gravity, it must be that some other force or collection of forces is stronger than the force of gravity.
if it dosnt go down, it has no weight, weight is down or falling
there is no down without weight, if a cup cake falls from a tree, how far is it from down?
a metal feather falls..
