PhyFl18–SS3.2.11 Basketball (550g) vs. tennis ball (55 grams) Despite 10X the mass, the basketball falls at the same acceleration as the tennis ball.
PhyFl18–SS3.2.12 So why do they fall at the same rate?
PhyFl18–SS3.2.13 THe answer is: Inertia vs. force. Inertia is NOT force. It is a property of matter as Bill Nye says, but it is so much more. I’ve always thought that was a stupid thing to repeat over and over. Yes it is a property of matter, big deal. It is a measure of the RESISTANCE to change in velocity that na object has. The more the resistance the more the mass.
PhyFl18–SS3.2.14 Mass is the measure of the resistance
PhyFl18–SS3.2.15 So then why does the Big ball fall at the same increasing speed as the small ball so that they hit the ground at the exact same time with the exact same speed? The answer is that the Big ball has 10X the resistance to fall than the small ball. Gravity puts 10X the force on it to get it to fall. The tennis ball has 10X LESS force pulling on it, but it only offers 1/10 of the resistance. It’s a perfect balance between force of the Earth’s gravitational pull and the relative resistance each object offers.
PhyFl18–SS3.2.16 10X the force, 10X the resistance
PhyFl18–SS3.2.17 . . .
PhyFl18–SS3.2.18 One of the hours discussed the effect of air drag. We will look at this more second semester. This is me trying to give a quick and dirty explanation of air drag. Will not be on the next test.
PhyFl18–SS3.2.19 The offical Newton’s 1st Law of Inertia. We are trying to get this down to 4 words so we can put it on a t-shirt.

PhyFl18–SS3.2.32 Negative Free Fall Trios
PhyFl18–SS3.2..33 We talked about the St. Louis Arch because I thought at one time that it was a negative parabola. Turns out it is much more complicated.
