Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alternatively: 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.
