Answer

As the ball falls, the ball's increase in kinetic energy is equal to the work done on the ball by gravity. The work done on the ball by gravity is the force of gravity multiplied by the distance that the ball falls. Work = Force X Distance Therefore, the ball's kinetic energy increases by equal amounts in equal distances.
