## Do the two object reach the ground at the same time piece of paper and crumpled paper?

Both coin and paper(crumpled) have almost same surface area so, same amount of frictional force is exerted hence both reach to ground at same time.

## Which will fall faster crumpled paper or paper?

As air applies some resistance on falling sheet of paper as well as crumpled ball but the resistance to the motion of crumpled ball through the air decreases that makes it to fall faster than the sheet of paper.

## Why does a crumpled paper fall faster than an crumpled one?

When the paper is smooth, it exposes a large surface to the air beneath it which slows its descent. Once it is crumpled, the surface which comes in contact with the air is much smaller, allowing it to fall much faster.

## Why does crumpled paper fall faster than a sheet of paper?

Because of its smaller area, when a ball made from a crumpled sheet of paper is dropped from a height, it experiences less resistance from air, its speed increases and it falls at a faster rate.

## Did one ball hit the ground before the other or did both balls hit the ground at the same time?

Are both objects always falling at the same speed or is one falling faster than the other at certain points in time? Did both balls hit the ground at the same time? You should have found that both balls hit the ground at roughly the same time.

## Which of the paper hit the ground first?

The force of gravity on earth, no matter the object is approximately 9.8 m/ s2 . The reason the crumpled paper hits the ground first is because of air resistance. A crumpled piece of paper has less surface area than an piece of paper that is not crumpled. More surface area means more air resistance.

## Why does a piece of paper fall slower than a book?

But the surface area of the sheet is much more than that of the spherical ball. And air resistance varies directly with surface area. Hence the sheet experiences more air resistance than the ball and it falls more slowly than the paper ball.

## Which falls faster crumpled paper or rock?

Physical Science

(1) Due to air resistance , the stone will fall faster than the piece of paper .

## Why did not the other one reach the ground at the same time as the first?

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.

## Why does a piece of paper falls slowly to the ground despite the force of gravity on it?

General Science

Because gravity depends on mass and surface area. Is the object has more mass and surface area it will fall faster than the object with less. And thus, a sheet of paper falls slower than a coin under gravity through air.

## How does a paper fall?

By itself, a falling sheet of paper experiences severe air resistance as it moves downward through stationary air. It soon reaches a small terminal velocity â€” the downward speed at which the upward force of air resistance cancels its downward weight and it stops accelerating downward.

## Why does paper not fall at the same rate?

Feathers, paper, and small objects can only fall slower if they encounter varying air resistance. The gravitational force is proportional to mass of objects. When a force is applied to the object, it will resist with opposite force as forces always occur in a pair.

## What force is slowing the papers down as they fall to earth?

If we performed the drop in question on Earth, the ball would hit the ground first as the paper slowly drifts to the ground. This is such because the paper has a much larger surface area and more drag. The force of gravity is the same on both objects, as they are dropped from the same height.

roughly 9.8 m/s2
