I don't think you understand the Gravity of the situation!

Answering the question 'Do heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects?'

Today in science we have been exploring gravity and seeing if heavier objects fall faster. We all predicted that heavier objects would reach the floor first, however, we found that two objects of the same size, but different weights, reached the floor at the same time!

This is because the gravitational pull is the same regardless of the object weight - the only thing that may impact it is air resistance, for example if we were to do the same experiment with an egg and a feather!
