Continuing a tradition: Physics students test gravity from the Leaning Tower of Strosacker

On a perfect day for pumpkin dropping, Case Physics students proved once again that Galileo’s observations about gravity were correct in his experiment dropping two balls of different weight off the Leaning Tower of Pisa and noting they hit the ground at the same time. Whew! Celebrating ensued with pie and cider.

In Fox 8’s  Case Western Reserve students continue pumpkin smashing tradition, physics department chair Corbin Covault and physics major Sash Iyer share details. Be sure to check out the video at the top of the Fox 8 page.

Thanks for coming out to share in the fun!
