(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Which, if any, has the greater influence on rate of movement down a slope with a constant distance of 80cm: the gradient of the slope or the mass of the object moving down the slope?

2. acceleration = net force / mass

3. If the slope is 90 degrees, the rate of movement of falling objects with different masses would be the same because the acceleration of an object is inversely proportional to its mass.

Am I on the right track here? Any assistance will be appreciated. Thanks in advance
