Experimenting with this puzzler provided me with a learning experience I did not expect I experimented with several solutions One solution I found was that two identical backpacks would fall at the same rate Then I filled one backpack up with books and left the other one empty to my surprise they still fell at the same rate The next solution I tested was with two balloons First I dropped two balloons not blown up at the same time they fell at the same rate Next I blew one balloon up a little and left the other one not blown up I dropped them and this time they did not fall at the same rate the blown up balloon fell last Then to go a step farther I added five dried pasta noodles to the one I blew up and left the other the same Again the blown up balloon fell last After closely analyzing my results I concluded that heavier objects so not fall faster than lighter ones This puzzler surprised me with the results from my solutions When thinking about the question will heavier objects fall faster I think it makes sense that would be a true statement but after testing the theory I know it is not true I found that no matter what the weight it would have the same fall rate The only factor that could alter the result of the fall rate is the shape of the objects For example No matter what I did to the blown up balloon it still fell slower than the other one I believe it was because I added air and change the form of the balloon Even though I made it heavier it still fell slower In conclusion I disagree with Aristotles theory that the heavier the object was the faster it would fall
