Students sometimes have a difficult time understanding what acceleration in meters per second squared really means. Therefore, I present acceleration as meters per second every second instead. This helps students gain a better conceptual understanding of acceleration.

Previously we determined the motion graphs for dropping a ball from 2.0 meters and throwing a ball up to 2.0 meters and catching it again. In this video I show that the reverse of the drop coupled with the drop itself is the same thing as throwing the ball upward. Make sense? Okay, watch the video.
