Average Acceleration

What is the average acceleration of initial and final velocities are 44 and 54 m/s and initial and final time is 12 and 14 seconds.

Average acceleration = (v2-v1) / (t2-t1)
= (54 - 44) / (14 - 12)
= 10 / 2
= 5 m / s2

You hardly need an "average acceleration calculator" here. Just remember that the average rate of anything is (final - initial)/(change in time).
