writ:
""Falling" certainly implies
something that is decelerating due to having been overcome by a force greater than that which had set it upon its original course."

BETTER TO SAY:

"Falling" certainly implies
deceleration in one direction as an object's momentum in one direction is overcome by force in another direction. Acceleration is negative Deceleration and vice versa. Falling is the Deceleration of the original momentum.

thank you
