You decide to test your physics knowledge while going over a waterfall in a barrel. You take a baseball into the barrel with you and as you are falling vertically downward, you let go of the ball. What do you expect to see for the motion of the ball relative to the barrel? Will the ball fall faster than you and move toward the bottom of the barrel? Will it move slower than you and approach the top of the barrel, or will it hover apparently motionless within the falling barrel? Explain.
