acceleration due to gravity
In physics, gravitational acceleration is the acceleration on an object caused by force of gravitation
Free fall
In Newtonian physics, free fall is any motion of a body where gravity is the only force acting upon it
scalar
A scalar in physics is a physical quantity that can be described by a single element of a number field such as a real number, often accompanied by units of measurement
free-body diagram
In physics a free body diagram is a graphical illustration used to visualize the applied forces, movements, and resulting reactions on a body in a steady state condition
centripetal force
A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path
