Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Tammy on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 3:01pm.

A .5kg ball hangs on a string attached to the ceiling. If the string is cut what forces act on the ball as it falls? Ignoring air resistance.

Weight is one of the forces acting on the ball.
Is there another force acting on the ball? I know there isn't tension, friction. Is there a normal force acting on it in the downward direction?
