# Rectilinear motion: Calculation of velocity

A billiard ball is hit and travels in a line. If s centimeters is the distance of the ball from its initial position at t seconds, then s=100t2 + 100t. If the ball hits a cushion that is 39cm from its initial position, at what velocity does it hit the cushion?
