Force F is applied to the center of the ball. Where is the ball’s acceleration directed? In which direction is the ball moving?

The acceleration of the ball is co-directional with the force vector: it is impossible to determine the direction of the velocity, because there is no information about the initial speed of the ball.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
