A heavy lead ball is dropped from rest from the top of a very tall tower. Neglecting the effect due to air resistance, which one of the following statements is false? The ball falls 4.9 m during the first second that it falls. At time

`t=2.0s`

, the position of the ball is 19.6 m below its initial position. At time

`t=1.0s`

, the instantaneous speed of the ball is

`4.9(m)/(s)`

. The magnitude of the acceleration of the ball is constant. The magnitude of the velocity of the ball increases by

`9.8(m)/(s)`

for each second that the ball falls.
