what is the acceleration of an object thrown vertically down with a speed of 10 m/s



Expert Answer

Step 1

Any object thrown vertically downwards is subjected to the force of gravity. Any object moving under the force of gravity is accelerated by an acceleration called “acceleration due to gravity” (g). This acceleration due to gravity (g) depends up on mass of ea...
