1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Ball A is dropped from the top of a building. One second later, ball B is dropped from the same building. Consider the balls while they are both in flight. You may ignore air resistance. Which statements are true about this situation?

As time progresses, the difference between their accelerations increases

Ball A will hit the ground before ball B

Both have the same vertical acceleration

As time progresses, the difference between their velocities increases

As time progresses, the distance between them stays constant

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1. False, acceleration is constant 9.81

2. True, it fell first

3. True, acceleration is constant

4. Hm. I say true? One started accelerating first so the velocity should increase faster than the other

5. False, wouldn't it increase because the velocity on one is greater?

Please help!
