Drop the Ball, mon.

In Jamaica, if you drop a steel ball weighing five pounds from a height of 45 inches, will it fall more rapidly through water at 20 degrees Fahrenheit or water at 40 degrees Fahrenheit?

Or will it make no difference? Please tell why.

  • Yes objects travel slower through ice than through liquids. Water freezes at 32º Fahrenheit, 0º Celsius and 273.15º Kelvin. Most of the world goes by Roman Catholic Celsius and this would trick people outside of the U.S.

  • You are correct, Rodger!

    Yes, 20 degrees Fahrenheit is indeed, ice.

    Great job! You’re today’s winner.

    I thought Celsius was a Swede, raised as a Lutheran. Roman Catholic, that’s just preposterous.
