We are required to explain how gravitational acceleration varies across objects in free fall.
Which statement best compares the accelerations of two objects in free fall?
A) The heavier object has a greater acceleration.
B) The object that has the greater surface area has the lower acceleration.
C) The object that has the smaller mass has the greater acceleration.
D) The objects have the same acceleration.
