I have a hard time understanding this though. From what i have found, the reason for this is that more massive objects have a stronger attraction to each other due to gravity. They also have more inertia which balances out the force of gravity. Therefore causing objects to fall at the same rate.

So answer me this. Hypothetically speaking, if the earth were to completely stop in its orbit, would it fall into the sun at the same rate as a feather? Im not too educated on equations and such but thankfully there is online calculators for problems like this. According to this online free fall calculator https://www.omnicalculator.com/physics/free-fall it says that the amount of time it would take for an object to fall into the sun (force of gravity set at 28.02 times that of earth) (initial velocity set at 0) (height set at distance from earth to sun 149600000 km) would be 9.166 hours. Then i asked google how long it would take the earth to fall into the sun if it completely stopped in its orbit. The answer, about two months, or 65 days! Thats not even remotely close to 9.166 hours. I must be missing something. Whats going on here? Thank you for your time and insight!
