Professor John Goree & Lou Datilio

  • Gravity

  • Weight

  • Falling

  • in Space: Microgravity (Weightlessness)



Q. Why does everything dropped (here, the apples) are seated?fall downward?

A. Gravity

All things attract one another


Falling are seated?

Pictures taken (at regular intervals) of a ball falling


Falling are seated?

All objects fall at the same speed (without air resistance)



Falling are seated?

Throwing a ball at different speeds


Falling are seated?

Throwing it hard enough might make it go into orbit around the earth


Demonstration: are seated?

Weight are seated?


Demonstration: are seated?

weight on a bathroom scale


Weight are seated?

Weight and Weightlessness inside an elevator


They are alike, because both are falling


Video: free fall are seated?


Weightlessness are seated?

astronauts inside their spacecraft


Microgravity weightlessness
