It is necessary that they are both different and the same. In order to be different they must be the same in some respect, and to be the same they must be different in some respect. A comparison of two objects requires they are the same in that both are objects, but different in that they are different objects.
Can two objects be the same?
Two distinct objects are never equal, even if they have the same properties. Only comparing the same object reference with itself yields true.
Does two objects fall same time?
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.
Can two objects look the same size but be different sizes?
Large, distant objects can appear the same size as small, nearby objects. Under normal viewing conditions, with both eyes open, you have the ability to perceive depth. If two objects appear to be the same size, but you know that one is farther away than the other, your brain tells you that the distant object is larger.
Why do two objects land at the same time?
Because Earth gives everything the exact same acceleration, objects with different masses will still hit the ground at the same time if they are dropped from the same height.
Can two objects share the same space?
Because it occupies space, all matter has volume and impenetrability, since two objects cannot occupy the same space simultaneously.
Can two objects overlap or occupy the same spot?
The laws of physics say that two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Waves are not objects. Waves can and do occupy the same space at the same time – in other words, they interfere with each other.
Why do objects drop at the same time?
Answer 1: Heavy objects fall at the same rate (or speed) as light ones. The acceleration due to gravity is about 10 m/s2 everywhere around earth, so all objects experience the same acceleration when they fall.
Why do 2 objects fall at the same rate?
The acceleration of the object equals the gravitational acceleration. The mass, size, and shape of the object are not a factor in describing the motion of the object. So all objects, regardless of size or shape or weight, free fall with the same acceleration.
Is there gravity in space?
Some people think that there is no gravity in space. In fact, a small amount of gravity can be found everywhere in space. Gravity is what holds the moon in orbit around Earth. Gravity causes Earth to orbit the sun.
What do you observe when you push the 2 same objects at the same time with the same force?
In a collision between two objects, both objects experience forces that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. Such forces often cause one object to speed up (gain momentum) and the other object to slow down (lose momentum).
Will two falling objects hit the ground at the same time?
Answer. If no air resistance is present, the rate of descent depends only on how far the object has fallen, no matter how heavy the object is. This means that two objects will reach the ground at the same time if they are dropped simultaneously from the same height.
What is the law of falling bodies?
A reminder – the law of fall states that the distance traveled by a falling body is directly proportional to the square of the time it takes to fall. This law leads to the conclusion that the speed of a body increases in direct proportion to the passage of time.
What is Galileo trick?
Galileo’s idea for slowing down the motion was to have a ball roll down a ramp rather than to fall vertically. He argued that the speed gained in rolling down a ramp of given height didn’t depend on the slope. His argument was based on an experiment with a pendulum and a nail, shown on page 171 of Two New Sciences.
Do heavier objects fall faster?
Acceleration of Falling Objects
Heavier things have a greater gravitational force AND heavier things have a lower acceleration. It turns out that these two effects exactly cancel to make falling objects have the same acceleration regardless of mass.
What is Galileo’s law?
Galileo’s law of free fall states that, in the absence of air resistance, all bodies fall with the same acceleration, independent of their mass.
Who discovered gravity Galileo?
In the early 17th century, Galileo Galilei found that all objects tend to accelerate equally in free fall. In 1632, he put forth the basic principle of relativity.
Why was Galileo buried twice?
(Key fact) Galileo was buried twice. His first burial was away from the church in an unmarked corner because he was convicted a heretic. In 1737 his grave was erected he was moved to his new resting spot shown in the picture in Florence, Italy.
