# How does acceleration change as an object falls?

Oct 18, 2015

#### Answer:

It remains constant at $a = g = 9 , 8 m / {s}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

If it falls near the earth's surface and if we ignore the effects of friction and air resistance, then the acceleration does not change at all and remains constant at $9 , 8 m / {s}^{2}$ downwards towards the earth's centre.
