What do you mean by acceleration due to gravity?

view solution

Gravitational force acts on all objects in proportion to their masses. Why then, a heavy object does not fall faster than a light object?

view solution

A stone is allowed to fall from the top of a tower 100 m high and at the same time another stone is projected vertically upwards from the ground with a velocity of 25 m/s. Calculate when and where the two stones will meet.
