What is the direction of acceleration for a ball falling down from a basketball hoop?
What is the direction of acceleration for a ball thrown up to a basketball hoop? A ball is thrown vertically upward. (Ignore air resistance.) At what point during its flight is its acceleration zero?|||Gravitational acceleration is always a vector pointing vertically downward. The acceleration is always -9.8 m/sec^2 for the entire time it is in the air.|||the direction of acceleration will be the same as velocity (upward). when a ball is thrown vertically upward ignoring air resistance then the acceleration will remains same (constant) provided that the ball does not move very far from earth surface because g will change.
