I realize this probably sounds like a simple question, but I was just wondering how you put gravity in for the equation. I know that gravity is equal to +/-(9.8 m/s^2). However, when you are putting it in an equation such a v=v0+at...do you use 9.8/(t^2) or just the rate...9.8? Thanks in advance for the help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
