Throw down vs throw onto Hi. Please help me, Im trying to grasp if there is any difference between these two sentences :

He threw down his bag (on the floor).

He threw his bag onto the floor.

Thanks in advance!

He threw down his bag. (this is a separable phrasal verb)

He threw his bag down. 

He threw his bag on the floor.

 They are all correct.

They're both grammatically correct and mean the same thing, but the first sentence sounds better to the ear and more commonly used.
