"Free-fall"

Assigning Variables:

Acceleration:

If an object is going down:
a = __________

If an object is thrown up:
a = _________

If an object is dropped:
a = _________

If an object is launched:
a = _________

If yall could just give me the equations or variables, I will solve the problem myself. Thanks.

This question makes no sense to me. The most likely response to me, is that a= g in all intances. Acceleration is the change in velocity, and for all objects near earth, it is the value and direction of g, the acceleration due to gravity.

9.81 for all i guess (gravity)
