1. ## Physics Question - Falling Bodies

1. You have a tiny slip of paper and a large rectangular wooden block. If you put both of them side-by-side and drop the two to the floor from the same height, the block gets to the floor first. Can you think of (and describe) three “simple” ways (using nothing but the two objects, and not in special rooms, etc.) to ensure that the two objects WILL fall to the floor in the same time?

Yes.

Put the tiny slip of paper on top of the large wooden block and then drop the block. Think about why they both fall to the floor at the same time .....
