## Summary:

- Is this a way to distinguish between a gravitational field and an accelerated rocket?

If we are in a cabine in a gravitational field and inside, we have a racket and a ball. We put strings in each side of the racket and we connect the racket to the ceiling of the cabine. This strings only allows us to keep the weight of the racket. Then, we drop a ball to the racket.

We do this exactly in an accelerated cabine. Will the ball reach the same height in both scenarios after the collision?

In the cabine in gravity, the ball will hit the racket, and in the accelerated cabine the racket will hit the ball. The ball has a mass of 0,1 kg and the racket 1kg.
