Average Acceleration

  1. Nov 7, 2006 #1
    A bird takes 8.5s to fly from position A to Position B along a path (looks like a parabolic curve facing downward) determine the birds average acceleration

    Va = 4.4 m/s [31 S of E]
    Vb = 7.8 m/s [25 N of E]

    I would draw a vector diagram to find the acceleration.

    va + change in v = vb

    The change in v plus the time given allows you to calculate the aceleration
