## Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics (3rd Edition)

$d\gt b = c \gt a$
Since the air resistance is negligible, the only force acting on each ball is the force of gravity. The force of gravity is $F = mg$, where $m$ is the mass of the object. The force of gravity is larger when the mass of the object is larger. We can rank the net force acting on each ball from largest to smallest: $d\gt b = c \gt a$
