Q. Why do a gram of weight and a pound of weight released simultaneously from the top of a tower reach the ground at the same time ?

Q. Why do a gram of weight and a pound of weight released simultaneously from the top of a tower reach the ground at the same time?

A. This is in accordance with the fact that both the weights fall with the same acceleration of 9.8 metres/sec2. Since they are released simultaneously they will travel equal distance in equal time and, therefore, reach the ground at one and the same time.
