. What are the characteristics of an object in a state of free fall with respect to its speed and acceleration?

Mar 29th, 2015

A free falling object is an object that is falling under the sole influence of gravity. Any object that is being acted upon only by the force of gravity is said to be in a state of free fall. There are two important motion characteristics that are true of free-falling objects:

  • Free-falling objects do not encounter air resistance.
  • All free-falling objects (on Earth) accelerate downwards at a rate of 9.8 m/s/s (often approximated as 10 m/s/s for back-of-the-envelope calculations)
