Three objects are released to the ground while the mass and net force of each is recorded. Air resistance is assumed to be negligible. Which statement is correct about all three objects?(1 point)

No statements can be made about the objects without measuring the acceleration of each.

The ratio of mass to acceleration is constant across all objects.

The ratio of net force to mass is constant across all objects.

  1. They all accelerate down at about g = 9.81 m/s^2
    F = m a = m g
    so F/a = F/g = m = constant
