A projectile is fired with an initial speed of 50.0 m/s. Neglect air(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

resistance. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the projectile

3.00 sec after it is fired?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am using the following equation:

A=(V-Vo)/(T-To)

I set up the variables in the following way:

a = ?

Vo = 0 m/s

V = 50.0 m/s

To = 0 sec

T = 3 sec

When I do the math, the answer comes out to be 16.6 m/s. Can anybody verify that I did this problem correctly? If not then can anybody let me know where I might have gone wrong and pioint me toward the right track?

Thanks!

Doug
