Problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Soccer ball released from the top of a smooth incline after 4.58 seconds the ball travels 10 meters 1 second later it has reached the bottom of the incline, the balls acceleration is constant and determine its value

(m/s^2) also need to know the length of the incline

I am posting for the first time and I hope this is ok

Tried to answer by taking 10 meters and dividing by 4.58 seconds but I was told this was wrong with no explanation

To find the incline I would use d= 1/2 a(t)^2

I am just a beginner in Physics and I am definetly confused any help would be greatly appreciated to get me on the right path to solving this problem I have tried other expressions to no avail thanks in advance
