A 3 kg ball is dropped from the top of a cliff. At the same time, a 9 kg ball is fired straight down from the top of the cliff. Ignoring air resistance, what can we say about their accelerations after being released?

**Calculus/Physics**

A stone is thrown from a cliff top with an upward velocity of 20 m/s. It takes 7 seconds for the stone to hit the ground at the bottom of the cliff. How high is the cliff? I know you use the equation of motion S(t)= (So)+(Vo)t-(1/2)gt^2 S(20)= (So) + 140 - 240.1 (So) = -100.1 ...
