    Hello friends,
    When two objects with different mass is propelled with same velocity, straight upwards into air, which object would travel more. The one with less mass or more??

    What do you think and why?
    You might try imagining that you have a motion picture of the two masses leaving the ground at the same time and at the same speed and climbing to their peak heights - what would it look like if you played it backwards?

    And also decide if you want to imagine a scenario where there is air or where there is only gravity. How do you think that would change things, if at all?
