Even though I understand this statement, could anyone give me an example using a mathematical equation so that I can fully understand the concept. |

The magnitude of the force between the Earth (mass $\displaystyle M$) and any body (mass $\displaystyle m$) is given by $\displaystyle F=\frac{GmM}{r^2}$. For the acceleration, as $\displaystyle F=ma$, simply divide the force by $\displaystyle m$.

The conclusion follows. (I hope you can fully understand it now)
