Both objects have only one force acting on them: the force of gravity due to the moon. Hence both accelerate at the same rate. Therefore both reach the ground at the same time.
so you're saying that when we drop an elephant and a mouse from the same height at the same time ( on the moon of course) then they will both reach the ground at the same time.. that's true but very hard imagine right (:
yes. And they'll be very dead too.
