It is gravity on earth

downward

When there is that force that pulls downward. Example, when you climb a mountain. You will fell that there is that gravity pulling downward.

It is the earth's gravity.

well if they think about it the square root of turkey is 57 so this proves that gravity is 67m/s in a downward direction

By applying an upward force on the object that is greater than the downward force of Earth's gravity acting on it. Somewhat the same thing that you do with your leg muscles when you walk upstairs, or go in for a jump shot.
