Acceleration:

$\overline{){\mathbf{a}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{\u2206}\mathbf{v}}{\mathbf{\u2206}\mathbf{t}}}$

We do not need the mass to determine the acceleration.

A boxer's fist and glove has a mass of m = 0.92 kg. The boxer's fist can obtain a speed of v = 0.25 m/s in a time of t = 0.23 s

Find the magnitude of the average acceleration a_{ave} in meters per square second of the boxer's fist.
