Make sure you film that.
Especially the part about getting the elephant to the top. Watch where you step.
There will be no difficulty taking it up. I'll take a baby elephant and wait for it to grow up.
Yes but Galileo didn't,
Yeah, guess he didnt. But we will! With elephants!
Sorry for diving off-topic, but the bit in bold above is untrue. The point of the thought experiment is that it only works in a vacuum, because as soon as you introduce atmospheric drag the net acceleration is determined by both weight and aerodynamic drag.
Don't apologize. We are ALL totally off topic here.
Go through this (Seems like someone already tried out our experiment!):http://www.physicsclassroom.com/mmedia/newtlaws/efff.cfm
and then thishttp://www.physicsclassroom.com/mmedia/newtlaws/efar.cfm
Subsequently, the amount of air resistance is dependent upon the speed of the falling object and the surface area of the falling object[\quote]
Quoted from the above 2nd link.
Guess you are right that this will not happen on earth. But acceleration is same for both balls(9.8m/s^2). It is not determined by weight or aerodynamic drag(best explanation: www.jimloy.com/physics/galileo.htm
and links above). Instead, the heavier ball will accelerate for longer time, hence having more terminal velocity and striking ground first.
