An iron sphere of mass 30 kg has the same diameter as an aluminum sphere whose mass is 10.5 kg. The spheres are dropped simultaneously from a cliff. When they are 10 m from the ground, they have the same:A. accelerationB. momentumC. potential energyD. kinetic energy

Given,

Mass of iron m = 30 kg

Mass of aluminium M = 10.5 kg

Height of iron h = 10m

Height of aluminum H = 10m

We know,

Kinetic energy = m v2

Potential energy = m × g × h

Momentum = mass × velocity

So kinetic energy, potential energy, kinetic energy and momentum depends of the mass of the body, they can’t be same for both spheres.

But acceleration due to gravity g = 10 ms-2 is same for all the objects at some height, irrespective of their mass and height.
