A car moving with a constant acceleration covers the distance between two points 60 m apart in 6.0 s. Its velocity as it passes the second point is 17 m/s.
a) What was the speed at the first point?
b) What is the constant acceleration?
c) How far behind the first point was the car at rest?

bobpursley,
You have two equations that help:
vf=vi+ at and'
vf=2ad set them equal and solve for a.

Jayd,
When I solve for a I get the .061 and this is incorrect for the constant acceleration. I don't know what I am going wrong.
