Check engine light on? If so have it checked for codes. That should point you towards a possible misfire.

Why doesnt a heavy object accelerate faster than a light object?

You must be talking about the effect of gravity on the two objects. It takes more force to accelerate a more massive object, and less force to accelerate a less massive one. You know that if you've ever tried to push a bicycle first and a battleship second. Gravity attracts a more massive object with greater force, and a less massive object with less force, so the result is that they both fall with the same acceleration.
