Problem: A ball is thrown downward with a large starting velocity. Will this accelerate more rapidly than one that is just dropped at the same time from the same height? A) No, because it starts faster it will later accelerate less rapidly. B) No, freefall acceleration is always the same, no matter what the initial velocity. C) Yes, a ball that already has a higher velocity will also accelerate at a higher rate. D) Yes, but only of the thrown ball is also heave than the dropped ball.
