a=change in velocity
They are both falling as a constant acceleration towards the earth
The earth creates a gravitational acceleration field around the earth and objects in that field experience the same acceleration field.
they are both under the influence of gravity
The acceleration on earth is 9.807 meters per second squared. In comparison, the moon's acceleration is only 1.62 m/sec squared; about 6.05 times less. This is why objects on earth weigh six times less on the moon.
everything in the universe attracts each other, the heavier and closer two things are, the more they attract each other, except this effect is much to small to be felt on everyday objects, and only becomes apparent on very large objects such as the moon and the earth. but the moon is much lighter than the earth, and has a smaller radius (the distance between the centre of the earth, and the object, making each planet have a different acceleration due to gravity, making acceleration different as objects are pulled to the earth/moon at different speeds.
The acceleration of falling objects in Earth is about 9.8 m/s2.
It is 9.81ms-2
Ask around to find out what planet they're falling on.If it's the earth, then the acceleration is 9.8 meters (32.2 feet) per second2.
When falling to the ground (or even just in the air), the acceleration of an object depends on the gravitational pull of the object it is falling towards. Here on earth, all things fall relative to the earth which causes an acceleration of 9.81 m/s^2
Without atmospheric drag, all free falling objects near earth's surface will have the same acceleration. But because of friction with the air (air resistance), the velocity of objects due to that acceleration is limited. The actual velocity is dependent on the surface area of the object relative to its mass. The principle of the parachute is to increase the surface area of a falling object with respect to its mass.
Newton's 2nd law F=ma explains that objects will move in the direction of the acceleration a. The object is subject to an acceleration, in this case the acceleration is g= GM/r2 toward earth. Newton discovered this acceleration in. his law of universal Gravitation, F=mGM/r2 This is why objects fall to earth. F=ma says that the force required to produce an acceleration is proportional to mass. The moon does not move in the direction of the acceleration. It accelerates but contiously misses falling onto the earth because it is moving sideways. For ordinarary falling objects, the force of gravity pulls them down, since they are not moving sideways fast enough to miss the earth. It's the law of gravity working here not the law of motion.
The acceleration of a falling object is called gravity. A free-falling object has an acceleration of 9.8 m/s/s when going downward on Earth.
The acceleration is the same for all objects, as long as air resistance is insignificant. After a while, different objects will have different amount of air resistance. Also, even without air resistance, the speed depends not only on the acceleration, but also on how how long the objects are falling.
The acceleration due to gravity on earth doesn't depend on the mass of the falling object. All falling objects on the same planet fall with the same acceleration. On earth, the acceleration is 9.8 meters/sec2 .
It is a projectile falling with an acceleration equal to that of free fall. (an object falling in a vacuum at the earth's surface)
