1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Alice and Bill are at the top of a building. Alice throws her ball downward. Bill simply drops his ball. Which ball has the greater acceleration just after release? 2. Relevant equations force, F=ma and F=mg 3. The attempt at a solution Alice: F=ma+mg=m(a+g) Bill: F=mg Alice's ball has a greater acceleration. I AM WRONG. WHY?
