FALLING BALL & PAPER -stroboscopic<br />
Newton's Second Law of Motion<br />
The ball will reach the ground first. The paper experiences greater air resistance resulting in a smaller net force acting upon it  and it falls more slowly than the ball. Exposure was made for 1/2 second, 10 flashes per second of a 3" tennis ball.
