all i do is point out the fallacies and illogical parts of your thoughts. this happens with just about everyone of your posts, so I can see where it might be off-putting to you.
we both know how to make it stop....
If you dropped a feather and a 20lb weight from the Empire state building which one would hit the ground first?

I cheated, I taped the feather to the bowling ball.
Now a question that will fry your brain.
Drop a 22 bullet and fire a 22 bullet on a level plane of equal height. Negate wind and air resistance effects.
Which one will hit the ground first?

Hols it, I hate to do this, though I may be coming in late, but replaytime might be correct. If I am right he is talking about falling with the effect of wind resistance.

If there is no wind resistance objects will fall at the same rate, well, almost. So a lighter ball will fall marginally slower than a denser ball in an atmosphere. In a vacuum, like on the Moon, you will not see a difference.

neither. the bullet fired from the rifle hit Replaytime's bowling ball and ricocheted into the other bullet and they both landed on top of the feather...

did i mention Rod Serling was firing the rifle?

how bout if I heat up the ten pound ball so it heats the air it is moving through so it is less dense? temperature of the object was never discussed...

The propelled object respectfully. But in a complete vacuum with zero resistance, I truly don't know.

No moving of the goal posts.

Besides even a hot bowling ball will have air resistance.

Temperature of the object will increase with friction as it falls. But I guess your genius mind must had already know that.

but would it decrease the air resisitance? if you had a ten pound ball at 3,000 f and a same sized ball at absolute zero, would they fall at eh same rate? would the temp difference affect it enough for the lighter ball to fall faster?

oops...the absolute zero ball would weigh twenty pounds while being the same size as the ten pound ball....

Why do you claim that the propelled object will hit the ground first.

I will tell why the answer is "it depends" for the case of a vacuum if you do.

Depends on the velocity and gr of the bullet a typical 40 gr 22 bullet will have a muzzle velocity somewhere around 1250 ft per second and will travel over a mile so the fired bullets gunna have a hell of a head start on the one you just drop

does gravity work differently on the bullet with more velocity? why?
