If you drop an object, its acceleration toward the ground is 10.0 m/s^2. If you throw it down instead, is its acceleration after throwing greater than 10.0 m/^2 ? Why or why not?

    The force exerted by gravity is proportional to mass. The resulting acceleration is independent of mass and velocity.
