2.3 Acceleration due to Gravity

This section covers the following syllabus (Physics 5059) requirements.

  • state that the acceleration of free fall for a body near to the Earth is constant and is approximately10 m / s2

  • describe the motion of bodies with constant weight falling with or without air resistance, including reference to terminal velocity

State that the acceleration of free fall for a body near to the Earth is constant and is approximately 10 metre per square second. Describe the motion of bodies with constant weight falling without air resistance.
