ACME and Galileo
When conducting any experiment, we have to consider other variables, human error being one of the most common occurrences. Other variables include outside forces, in this case air resistance. When ACME observed that Galileo’s theory seemed to be proven false in their factory, they did not take into consideration air resistance when making their argument but only measured the speeds at which the filters fell.
We started the experiment by dropping filters from one meter high. First we dropped a single filter by itself, and then we dropped 3 filters stacked at once. There was a significant amount of time difference between the two, the 3 filters being faster, just as ACME observed. Since the position, placement, and “shape” of the filters are all factors that can affect the amount of air resistance present, we folded the filter(s) in half 3 times, creating a wedge out of the filter(s), which looked similar to a pie slice. We first dropped the wedge folded from a single filter with the point of the filter pointing towards the ground, as we thought this would create the least amount of air resistance. We then dropped the wedge folded from 3 filters and dropped it towards the ground. Although the 3 filters folded still fell quicker, the time difference improved by a large margin. In additi...

It can be divided into three layers (D, E and F) based on the type of EMR absorbed in each layer. Hard X-ray radiation with short wavelengths and high frequencies is absorbed in the D region, soft x-rays (longer wavelengths) are absorbed in the E region, and extreme UV radiation with short wavelengths such as UVc are absorbed in the F region.World
