Just wondering: all objects fall at the same speed, right(not taking into account air resistance)? So if I dropped a feather and a bowling ball on the moon, they'd fall at the same speed. So far so good.

But my physic book's definition of weight is "The weight of an object is the force that acts on it because of gravity; Weight = Mass x Acceleration due to gravity" .

The bowling ball's mass is clearly greater than the feather's, so therefore it's weight and therefore pull of gravity on it must be different, resulting in a different speed....

Confused!

Any help much appreciated :)
