I’m sure anyone reading this has seen the demonstration of two balls of different masses (focus people:p) being dropped from a high place only to show that they fall at the same rate. But to drop -say a feather and a bowling ball can change the outcome greatly (a bit of wind resistance)… I am wondering, were I to be tiny as an ant -would the same amount of downward force apply to me as to a dinosaur?
Yes, I know some about gravity -not alot (which is why I’m here)
What I’m getting at is, if I were small, very small, would gravity have less of an effect on my body; something like walking on the moon? Is it why insects so often can pull off such enormous feats of strength and jumping large distances?
Because to compare what they can do for their size to a person of our size would be in many cases considered “super-human”.
Any physics pros out there that can enlighten me some things? If you didn’t find a question in that stack of words above, then just do your best to form one yourself and should I need to clarify things further I will as the answers roll in. Thanks.
