## Gravity: Acceleration Kills

by Leon Anh //basic
Once, there was man plunging to his doom. However he realized that because gravity accelerates objects at the same rate, if he could grab another object right before he fell, he could cushion the impact. Thus he grabbed his mortal enemy and lived. \ \ --- Teacher Contact: \ Debra Dimas, dimasd@esuhsd.org \ Santa Teresa High School
