Two identical bar magnets A and B are held at rest as shown and released to fall simultaneously. Magnet A as it falls passes through the center of a copper ring, magnet B does not.

#9 (4 points possible)
Which of the following statements is true?

- unanswered Magnet A hits the ground before magnet B. Magnet B hits the ground before magnet A. The difference in fall times depends on the strength of the magnets. This cannot be determined without knowing the directions the magnets point. Both magnets hit the ground at the same time.
