#### Answer

Your partner is correct; both balls undergo the same acceleration in the absence of air resistance.

#### Work Step by Step

This is discussed on pages 46-47. The acceleration of a freely falling object, in the absence of air resistance, is always $10 \frac{m}{s^{2}}$ directed downward. Madison's and Anthony's balls have oppositely directed velocities, but identical accelerations.
