Quick and Easy Gravity Experiment
Try this quick and easy Science Experiment that demonstrates the concept of zero gravity. This experiment is easy to perform with two supplies that you more than likely have on hand at home, School aged children will marvel at the different between the results of these two speedy trials. This experiment should be done outdoors.
In this experiment, there are two speedy trials. In the first trial, holes are poked in a plastic bottle and then filled with water. Gravity causes the water to pour out of the holes at a steady pace. In the second trial, the same bottle with the holes and water is used, however, the bottle is held high and dropped. When this happens the water and the plastic bottle fall to the earth at the same speed, so the water does not leak out of the bottle.
