Gravity, also called gravitation, in mechanics, the universal force of attraction acting between all matter.
Aristotle during the Greek days was considered a master; he proclaimed “heavier objects will fall faster”.
Galileo later was to say an assumption, accepted as valid today, “all objects accelerate at the same rate regardless of what they weigh”.
Sir Isaac Newton expanded upon this notion, and developed his theory of gravitation and the three laws of motion.
Albert Einstein had an ingenious mind; he stated “gravity is a distortion in the geometry of space and time”.
Lloyd Zirbes after years of tests contends, “all objects do not accelerate at the same rate my friends”.

Stick the landing or die trying . . .
High diving is the act of diving into water from relatively great heights. Rick Charls succeded in diving 52.4 m at Sea World on the show Wide World of Sports, 1983. Apparently, no one has ever jumped this high without injury https://t.co/xawwSU5o9h pic.twitter.com/5ZO2tL7M7n

There's a point where the velocity is null due the pull of the rope. This is when Damien Walters lets go and executes an unsecured hold & release bungee jump https://t.co/G53y1r3Qbl | https://t.co/5cAtE1iAbL pic.twitter.com/TbKcMXc7EQ

Next time please consider:
– Potential energy
– Elastic coefficient of the slide
– Initial velocity
– Angle of impact#SundayFunday pic.twitter.com/lV1GOwl1lb
