Ok the question I have is pretty simple(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

we claimed thatif the air resistance could be neglected all objects on hte moon wuld fall at

a. the same constant speed

b. an increasing acceleration

c. the same constant acceleration

d. a decreasing acceleration

Ok so i know its not the same constant speed, because the acceleration is what changes. And I know the acceleration isnt decreasing, or it would be getting slower and stop mid air...which obviously doesnt happen. So I'm torn between b and c, an increasing acceleration and the same constant acceleration. If we use the rule that gravity pulls us 10 m/s-squared then it would have the same acceleration the whole time and the velocity would increase, so the answer has to be c right?

...ok now that i'm confused hopefully someone agrees with me or can explain why thats wrong.
