A cannonball rolling off a table * #6. A cannonball rolling off a table * The vector is oriented down. What can you summarize about the direction of the vector representing acceleration of all these objects? What are other examples? The rock pebble football and all have different masses. How does this affect the magnitude of the acceleration vectors? On Earth, what would its magnitude be?...
