Below is a link to an article I was reading (Keeping in mind it was difficult for me to find any other articles of the kind) that talks about how often asteroids hit Mars. Unfortunately, it is very vague in its information, both on the size of the asteroids and the mass (Including the composition of the asteroids)

What exactly would be the force (In g's or N) of an asteroid hitting the surface of Mars, keeping in mind that Mars has a lower gravitational force than Earth and a very weak atmosphere? It would be appreciated if anyone could provide information on even just the mass of the asteroids that commonly hit the surface of the planet.

Thanks!
