1) during the entire first second of its fall (2) at the end of its first second of fall (3) during its entire time of fall (4) after it has fallen 9.8 meters

v = u + at -9.8 = -9.8t t = 1 sec

v final velocity u initial velocity a acceleration t time free fall a = -9.8 v is negative as it is going down

Alternatively: acceleration is by definition change in velocity. Here the acceleration is is a constant, g in the downward direction. Hence of the object starts at rest and has velocity v in the downward direction at time t, then by definition \[ acceleration = \frac{v}{t} = g \] i.e., \( v = gt \) Hence \[ v = g \] when \( t = 1 \) second.
