    EXAMPLE

    From the top of the "Tower of Pisa", we release a mass m1=1kgr made from cotton wool..
    We then repeat the experiment with a mass m2=10^18kgr , consisting of the material of a neutron star.
    If υ1 is the velocity of mass m1 as it falls onto the surface of the Earth and υ2 is the velocity of mass m2 (as it falls onto the surface of the Earth), we are seeking::
    How much greater the velocity with which the cotton wool mass falls onto the surface of the Earth is, compared to the velocity of the neutron star mass.
    The mass of the Earth is taken as M=6.10^24kgr and masses m1 and m2 are considered point masses

    Right, because the neutron star mass is non- negligible compared to the size of the Earth. Where are you going with this?
