Free Fall

In this module, we will study free fall problems which are a special case of constant acceleration where the only "push" or "pull" on a falling object is due to the Earth's gravity. A real falling object can be modeled as a free fall problem if the effect of air resistance is small and if they are dropped close enough to the earth that the Earth appears flat.
