# A baseball goes from zero to 44 m/s in 0.153 s. What is its average acceleration?

Jan 23, 2017

$287.6 \setminus m {s}^{- 2}$ (1dp)

#### Explanation:

The average acceleration is calculated using:

$\left(\text{change in velocity")/("change in time}\right) = \frac{\Delta v}{\Delta t}$

So,

$\text{Avg acceleration} = \frac{44 - 0}{0.153 - 0} = 287.581699 \ldots$
