Solution

When an object falls freely to the ground, it is under the effect of a constant force known as force of gravity. No other forces act on it. Hence, from Newton's second law of motion, we can say that this constant force of gravity accelerates the the freely falling object uniformly. This uniform acceleration is known as acceleration due to gravity which acts towards the centre and is denoted by g.
