    I want to know why if I throw 2 balls and one ball is bigger and whit more mass
    Why the two balls arrive to the ground in the same time
    This is the experiment of glilio glili
    Also I search after more experiment in mechanics (physics) like this
    Or like this experiment - if I throw a ball up when the ball arrive to the maximum the velocity is zero
    thanks

    Welcome to the PF. Here is an discussion of Galileo's famous "experiment" (which most likely was a thought experiment, but there is debate about that):

    The 2 objects fall at the same rate (neglecting air resistance) because they both experience the same acceleration due to gravity, which is independent of the object's mass.

    To find you more examples of experiments, I just googled classic physics experiments. Here is the hit list:
