A tennis ball with a speed of 25.9 m/s is

moving perpendicular to a wall. After striking

the wall, the ball rebounds in the opposite

direction with a speed of 21.3157 m/s.

If the ball is in contact with the wall for

0.0133 s, what is the average acceleration of

the ball while it is in contact with the wall?

We do not recognize uta as a School Subject. Look to the upper left for a choice.

Divide the velocity change by the time interval. Note that the bounceback velocity is negative.

Acceleration = [25.9 -(-21.3157)]/0.0133

= 3550 m/s^2
