In his “What is Conservation Biology?” Soulé argues that the primary aim of conservation is the protection and continuity of entire communities and ecosystems, with an emphasis on protecting biodiversity because species have intrinsic or inherent value (Soulé 728). While it is valid that species should be conserved because they have value in themselves, it is not enough, nor is it the only aim of conservation. Soulé elaborates, however, that it is also important

It was represented through three different analyses; position of the object vs. time, velocity of the object vs. time, and acceleration of the object vs. time. Free fall is defined as the unrestricted falling motion of an object that is falling solely under the influence of earth’s gravitational field (Fitzpatrick, 1).
