#### Solution

Mass of the body

Acceleration due to gravity of body of mass *m* is given by the relation:

g = `"GM"/R^2`

Where,

G = Universal gravitational constant

*M* = Mass of the Earth

*R *= Radius of the Earth

Hence, it can be inferred that acceleration due to gravity is independent of the mass of the body.
