As humanity, we haven’t had the opportunity to ‘play ball’ on an extraterrestrial planet yet, so we are on a different planet or celestial body. how the ball can move
We have no information about . Planetary scientist Dr. With an animation he prepared, James O’Donoghue revealed that a person who enjoys playing ball on Earth cannot have the same pleasure on other planets in the Solar System.
Dr. Animation shared by James O’Donoghue roughly dropped from a height of 1 kilometershows the speed at which a ball reaches the celestial body it was dropped on. In the animation created by assuming that there is no air resistance, a ball at a height of 1 kilometer World
Arrival time to 14.3 seconds is displayed.
The most massive celestial body in the Solar System Sun
In , it takes only 2.7 seconds for a ball 1 kilometer high to reach the surface. this period Mercury
23.2 seconds on , Venus
15 seconds on , Moon, on the other hand, it appears as 35.3 seconds. neighboring planet Mars
In , it takes 23.2 seconds for the ball to reach the surface.
Dwarf planet between Mars and Jupiter Ceres
In , it takes 57 seconds for the ball to hit the ground. Jupiter this time drops to 9 seconds. Saturn drop time of 13.8 seconds, Uranus 15 seconds, Neptune 13.4 seconds, Pluto, on the other hand, it appears as 56.7 seconds.
At this point, you might ask how the ball falls to the ground in the same amount of time on a huge planet like Uranus and a small planet like Venus. The reason for this interesting similarity is that the two planets difference in density. Since Uranus is a gas giant, its density is almost the same as Venus. Similarly, even though Mars is a larger planet than Mercury, Mercury’s higher density causes the ball to fall to the ground in the same amount of time on both planets.
