Answer:

-0.103 m/s2

Explanation:

Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of speed per unit time. The change of speed is given by deducting the initial speed from the final speed and represented by

Therefore, acceleration, a is given as where t is time in seconds.

where v represent velocity and subscripta f and i represent final and initial respectively. The formula for acceleration can then be re-written as

Since the rolling ball finally comes to rest then the final velocity is 0. The time, 1 min is equal to 60 s.

The negative denote that it is deceleration
