A tennis ball is shot vertically upward from the surface of an atmosphere-free planet with an initial speed of 20.0 m/s. One second later, the ball has an instantaneous velocity in the upward direction of 15.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of this planet.
