Please help - Gravity v/& Acceleration
I hope you can help me with this as I am having a problem sorting all this out.
I have been told that Gravity and acceration are the same thing. It was explained to me by thinking about droping a ball in a lift (that was is space so no gravity) and the ball would act as if it was being pulled to the floor by gravity.
OK, I sort of understand this.
But I was also told that if a swing a stone on a string around y head, then the stone is affected by gravity towards the centre of the spining. ie. towards me. But I can't be producing gravity, so what is happening please.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
