Suppose a ball is thrown upward from the surface of the moon with an initial velocity of 20 m/sec. Then its height 'h' meters above the surface is a function of time 't' seconds after being thrown is modeled by the following equation: h(t)= -.8t^2 = 20t(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the moon? (please show your work or explain how you got your answer) (the correct answer is aboue 1.6 m/s^2...but I need to know how the answer is gotten) THANKSSS!!!!!
