If two objects are dropped at the same height, at the same time, at the same 
gravitational pull, will the objects hit the ground at the same time even 
though one object fell at a longer distence because of it's velocity?  Ex.. 
one eraser is dropped straight down, while another, at precisly the same 
time, is almost thrown outward and takes a larger arc downward.  Is there a 
way we could perform an experiment to prove this? Thanks. :-)
