Hi guys To me I sound stupid, but I'm probably just overthinking the question. I know acceleration due to gravity is 9.8m/s/s. But if the distance is less than a metre or takes less than a second, wouldn't the acceleration be less than 9.8? If so, how is that worked out? If not, then is it correct to say that if something falls for a distance of 0.7m and comes to a stop, the acceleration is still 9.8m/s/s?
