It's floating the whole time! From the moment it leaves the hand, 'till the moment it is caught, the force acting on the ball does not change. Itâ€™s a constant 1G. The earth does not know or care what direction the ball is going in. The force of gravity does not change. Itâ€™s constant.It seems to me the only time the ball is at 'neutral g's' is. is floating is the split second in time when it is neither rising or falling which is when it is at the apogee of its trajectory.
Yes. When the ball is going up, it is getting slower and slower. Itâ€™s decelerating because of the only force acting on it, gravity, 1G. The reason it decelerates is that the force is acting in the opposite direction to itâ€™s movement.The device measures G forces as the ball accelerates and deaccelerates.
No. The forward and backward push you experience in a car are nothing to do with gravity. Any speed change of the car must be the result of an applied force. In this case the engine or breaks. But your body is not connected to either. You are connected only by your back on the seat and your hands on the wheel. When the car accelerates or decelerates, the forces pass through these points of contact to accelerate or decelerate you.If what your putting forward is correct we would not feel G forces when a car accelerates or brakes.
