Motion under gravity

Share with:


Two stones of mass 5 kg and 10 kg are dropped from the same height above the ground level. Which one will hit the ground first? Why?


Answer: Both the stones will reach the ground simultaneously (provided we neglect the air resistance (the viscosity) and buoyant force.

This is because acceleration due to gravity is independent of mass of the freely falling body.
