  • Acceleration can not be considered constant as it is a vector quantity, so when the rock is moving upward it has acceleration (equal to the g= 9.8m/S^2) in the negative direction (-9.8 m/s^2)of the motion and when it is falling back, its acceleration is equal to the gravitational acceleration but positive ( as in the direction of its motion )

  • we can not consider it as a constant as, half the time it is -9.8 m/S^2 and half the time it is +9.8 m/S^2
