#### Question

A ball hits a wall horizontally at 6.0 m s-1. It rebounds horizontally at 4.4 m s-1. The ball is in contact with the wall for 0.040 s. What is the acceleration of the ball ?

#### Solution

We have to find the value of uniform acceleration.
We have:
Initial velocity (u) = 6 m/s
Final velocity is in opposite direction to that of initial velocity (v) = –4.4 m/s
Time taken (t) = 0.04 s
Acceleration :
a = "υ-u"/t
Put the values in the above equation to get the value of acceleration .
a = "-4.4-6"/0.04
= 10.4/0.04
= -260  "m/s"^2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
