- Earth’s gravity is the only force acting on the object.
- No air resistance
- All objects falling near the Earth will accelerate at the same rate, regardless of their mass.
- Reason: F = m x a ( a = F/m, accel depends on F & m)

- Falling object stops accelerating when the force of air resistance becomes equal to the gravitational force (weight of the object)
- When air resistance = gravitational force, the object has reached it’s maximum Velocity or Terminal Velocity.
