FE acceleration
« on: August 13, 2007, 04:19:49 PM »
If you drop a untampered, flat paper, it should fall slowly and curve off in a random direction. As I look at it, for FE acceleration would cause the the paper to meat with the earth at the same time as any other object would if they fell from the same distance. For RE gravity would cause the paper to fall but the air below the paper would slow it down. In other words air would have no affect in the FE acceleration.

The only thing I am applying is acceleration and gravity/gravitation.

As Narc would say, "Another victory for FE RE!"

Narcberry (smarticus): "Oceans are free from gravity."

Uh, why is air resistance being ignored for the FE example?

He's right, that doesn't work.

That's because the earth is going to catch up to the paper (FE) not the paper catching up to the earth (RE).

RE: The paper is falling toward the earth, the only obstical is the air, that is where the parachute effect comes in.

FE: The earth is rising toward the paper, there is no obstical from the earth to paper. That is from what I read, everything is moving along with the earth, including the air.

Still doesn't work. Refer to GR.

But the Earth is pushing all the air up under the paper, which would maintain the accelerational force upwards on the paper somewhat.

Either way the paper has to get past all the air in the way, you can't pretand it doesn't exist.

That's why your experiment fails.
