drop a heavy object and a light object from the same height at the same time. time it with a stopwatch, or just watch them.
The heavy object will reach the ground at the exact same time as the lighter object (if they were dropped at the same time).
The largest variation from two objects moving downward either 'dropped' or 'thrown' thereby allowing earth's natural gravity to increase until an object approaches and/or reaches maximum velocity. The difference in the two examples, 'dropped' or 'thrown' objects merely illustrates that the "thrown" object will reach maximum velocity quicker than the 'dropped' object.
That would depend on the package, its contents and how it is wrapped. An empty, sturdy box will soon achieve terminal speed and look much like the box would after being dropped from a height of a few meters. A poorly wrapped heavy object would be seriously damaged.
They will hit the ground at the same time, since there is no wind resistance in a vacuum
they will accelerate at the same time. Just like what happens when a heavy and light object are dropped from the same height in a vacuum, they will reach the ground at the same time.
The reason is because the mass is like the volume and the weight is like how heavy an object is.
Due to the lighter gravity, yes it would be "easier" to carry a heavy object on the moon. It would weigh only a fraction of it's weight on earth (about 83.3% less).
-- Take a heavy object and a stopwatch. -- Start the timer as you drop the object from the unknown height. -- Stop the timer when the object hits the ground. -- Read the time off the watch, in seconds. Square it. (Multiply it by itself.) -- Multiply that result by 16.1 . -- Now you have the distance the object fell, in feet.
What a ramp does is trade distance for height. So it's not easier to move an object so much as it's easier to lift an object with a ramp.
If an object heavy enough to turn the nail black has been dropped on the nail, it will probably fall off by itself eventually.
