Homework Help: 1-d kinematics help

  1. Sep 6, 2004 #1
    I need some help with this problem for phys class

    A baseball pitcher throws a fastball at the speed of 36.1 m/s. the acceleration occurs as the pitcher holds the ball in his hand and moves it through an almost straight-line distance of 3.06m. calculate the acceleration, assumming its uniform.

    i have exhausted my resources trying to figure out how to go about solving this problem, help would be appreciated
