I am trying to understand the math behind this and keep getting stuck. If I want to accelerate and object downward,lets say 16 inches in 0.1655 seconds , that would be faster acceleration than gravity. I think 29.67 m/s2, so if I calculate force to accelerate at that rate downward, Do I have to subtract 9.8 m/s2 from my acceleration of 29.67 before I calculate the force? IE 29.67-9.8=19.87m/s2 and then I use that acceleration of 19.87 against my mass to determine the force required?

Hoping for some clarification ,Tom
