#### Storyboard Text

• Ok but be careful!﻿
• Mom! Jhane and I are going to hang around at the garden!
• Hey Jhane! Did you understand our lesson in physics earlier?
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿How is an apple going to help me understand it?
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Yeah! You know, I did not clearly understand it
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Oh I see, come here an apple is about to fall from a tree.
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Just trust me!
• ﻿So the velocity does not change?
• ﻿Oh I get it, acceleration is the rate of how velocity changes over time. So in a UAM, the acceleration does not change or is constant since the velocity changes at a constant rate?
• You're right!
• No Nicole, it changes, just at a constant rate.
• ﻿﻿In a Uniformly Accelerated Motion or UAM, the magnitude of the acceleration is constant.
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿When that apple falls, it will undergo free-fall since gravity is pulling it toward the Earth.
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿And all objects at free fall are exhibiting UAM, that's why I wanted to show it to you.
• ﻿Yes.
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿It is because all free-falling objects, accelerate towards the Earth at a constant rate of 9.8 m/s^2 neglecting air resistance and regardless of its mass and weight.
• ﻿﻿Is it true for all free-falling objects?
• ﻿Hmmmm??
• ﻿Why is it exhibiting UAM?
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Wow! That's amazing! I did not think it was just this easy to understand.
• I understand now Jhane, thanks for helping me. And I'm sorry for ruining our supposed to be relaxation afternoon.
