The acceleration is $g$. Note that the acceleration does not depend on the mass of the sandbag.

#### Work Step by Step

Let the mass of the sandbag be $m$. We can use Newton's second law to find the acceleration: $\sum F = ma$ $mg = ma$ $a = g$ The acceleration is $g$. Note that the acceleration does not depend on the mass of the sandbag.
