1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A ball is thrown straight up into the air. If we do not ignore air resistance, the acceleration of the ball as it is traveling upward is....? a.) 9.8m/s^2 b.) greater than 9.8m/s^2 c.) less than 9.8m/s^2 d.) zero 2. Relevant equations n/a 3. The attempt at a solution My line of thinking is that if there were air resistance, then the ball would travel slower. Therefore I thought the answer would be less than 9.8m/s^2. Correct answer is greater than 9.8m/s^2. Can somebody explain? Thanks.
