Gravitational force acts on all objects in proportion to their masses. Why then, a heavy object does not fall faster than a light object?

Solution :-

All objects fall on the bottom with constant acceleration called acceleration thanks to gravity (g). It’s constant and therefore the price of ‘g’ doesn't depend on the mass of associate object. So serious objects don't fall quicker than light-weight objects, provided there's no air resistance.
