Question

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

Solution

All objects fall on ground with constant acceleration, called acceleration due to gravity (in the absence of air resistances). It is constant and does not depend upon the mass of an object. Hence, heavy objects do not fall faster than light objects.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
