Homework Help: Help with an Average Acceleration question during a time period

  1. Apr 21, 2013 #1
    If a rugby player is running at 3.69 m/s and then decides to sprint in a straight line for a ball and 3.27 seconds later is running at 7.29 m/s, what is their average acceleration during that time? Units and direction of travel are not required




    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've used Avg Acceleration = v2-v1 / t2-t1 ... 7.29-3.69/3.27
    Final answer = 1.1

    Your answer is right.
    Do you have any reason to think it is wrong?
