How does the acceleration of the ball change as the angle of the inclined plane increases? |
It increases. |

It increases. |

The ball accelerates at a greater rate for the same duration of time. |

How does the distance traveled by the ball in the second half second compare with the distance traveled by the ball in the first half second? |
It increases. |

Why does the distance traveled by the ball in each half second after it is released change in the way that it does? |
