I am not a physics professional. I just have found a casual interest in physics. I have a question about gravity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Gravity accelerates objects at 9.8 meters per second, per second. I will round this off to 10 meters per second per second.

Does this mean that for every second, the rate of acceleration increases? In other words, after the 2nd second, the rate of acceleration is 20 meters per second? After the third second, the rate of acceleration is 30 meters per second? Is the RATE of acceleration increasing by 10 meters per second for every second so that after 20 seconds the rate of acceleration would be 200 meters per second?
