. In free fall of objects the acceleration in velocity due to gravity is independent of mass of those objects hence a heavy object does not fall faster than alight object. Why?

Expert Answer:

begin mathsize 12px style A c c e l e r a t i o n space d u e space t o space g r a v i t y space i s space g i v e n space b y space g space equals space fraction numerator G M over denominator R squared end fraction end style . Where G is gravitational constant, M mass of earth and R is radius of earth.
Hence accleration due to gravity is independent of mass of falling object. So heavy object does not fall faster than light object.
