Answer :

The acceleration of a freely falling body is equal to g, which is known as acceleration due to gravity.

The expression for acceleration due to gravity is

g = G M / R2,


'G' is universal gravitational constant,

'M' is mass of the earth,

And 'R' is radius of the Earth

From the above expression, it is clear that the acceleration of a freely falling body doesn't dependent of mass of the body, but depends on mass of the planet.
