Affects of gravity on oxygen

  1. Feb 1, 2008 #1
    two questions,

    If one was to create some sort of suspended gravity embraced in a cylinder, and then send oxygen and small particles of mass through it would the oxygen travel through and the particles deflected?

    If not could one create a relative situation by using magnetic waves or gamma rays?

    What do you mean by "create some sort of suspended gravity"? How is this different from just sending air and particles through an empty cylinder that's sitting in the gravity field of a planet? Why would oxygen behave differently from "small particles of mass" when oxygen molecules are small particles of mass? And what do you mean by "create a relative situation" in the last sentence?

    Please reword your question OP. Made almost no sense to me. Sorry :(
