I`m trying to find acceleration and I've been given distance and velocity. How would I find acceleration? (distance is distance from the ground; a ball was dropped from a certain height and that is what distance stands for)

  • Physics -

    a = Δv/Δt =
    (vfinal - vinitial) / (tfinal - tinitial)

    thanks :)
