Homework Help: Find acceleration based on final velocity and distance

  1. May 16, 2007 #1
    I have an airsoft gun that i am trying to find the acceleration for

    Initial Velocity=0
    Final Velocity= 106.68 m/s
    Distance Traveled=.762meters

    Is there any way i can find the acceleration with that information, i have no way to find an accurate time.

    final_v^2 = 2*dist*acceleration

    a = v^2/2d
