RATE OF FALL: 2 BALLS OF DIFFERENT MASS <br />
Golf Ball & Ping-Pong Ball<br />
<br />
Both balls fall at the same rate called free-fall acceleration or g.  The acceleration g is a constant 9.8m/s² and is independent of mass, density or shape.  (The influence of air pressure slightly slows the ping pong ball.)
