- "Next, calculate the average acceleration for each change in vector, using the equation..."

- Relevant Equations:
- average acceleration = change in velocity / change in time

Hello, so I am working on a projectile motion lab but I'm not sure what to do right now. Essentially, the lab consisted of my classmates and I using an air table to show that the vertical and horizontal components of projectile motion are independent. During one of our trials, we placed a puck on an incline and pushed it horizontally. The trajectory of the puck was a curve. Now, I found the acceleration between a few points but the issue is that because the puck traveled in a curve, the direction of the acceleration is constantly changing. So I'm not sure how to find the average acceleration.

Please help me ;-; and thanks in advance,
