    A ball is thrown downward with a large starting velocity. Will this ball reach the ground sooner than one that is just dropped at the same time from the same height?

    A) Yes because the average speed of the thrown ball is larger it will hit the ground first.

    B) No, because the acceleration is the same for both

    No, freefall acceleration is always the same, no matter what the initial velocity.
