What happens to the velocity of an object as it falls if the only force acting on the object is gravity? What happens to the acceleration of the object?

Would the velocity be constant?
Would the acceleration increase downward?

  • PHYSICS~Acceleration -

    'No' to both of your last two questions.

    Velocity increases linearly with time.
    Acceleration remains constant downwards.
