The earth has great mass so I'm sure it will be slow getting started on its journey to the sun.🎶 “What’s mass got to do with it”🎶
Although it will be slower starting - that’s what happens with acceleration - both the moon and earth would accelerate towards the sun at the same rate if mass were the only consideration. Think Galileo.
There would be slight differences due to diameter.
You can work out the g due to the sun/earth using Newton’s laws
