Homework Help: Finding Acceleration Given Distance and Final Speed

  1. Feb 9, 2009 #1
    1. A pitcher uses 3.5m to accelerate a baseball before release. Find the average acceleration of a ball starting at zero m/s and traveling 41m/s at release

    Thanks in advance. I'm lost with what I need to do.
