Calculate dropped ball acceleration question

  • #1
When you drop a ball, it accelerates due to Earth gravity. How does it accelerate if you instead throw it downward?

I know a free falling object accelerates at 10 m/s/s, is the same for an object that is thrown downwards?

Thanks for your help!!!

Well when you throw it downwards it'll basicly get more speed, but its acceleration will be gravity (Ignoring air resistance).
