In this problem, we are going to apply kinematic equations because we have constant acceleration.
Uniform accelerated motion (UAM) equations, a.k.a. "kinematics equations":
Let's list down the known variables:
An object is released from rest on a planet that has no atmosphere. The object falls freely for 3 m in the first second. What is the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity on the planet?
