**drwls**, Thursday, March 13, 2008 at 7:59pmThat would be V = a t, where a is the acceleration rate (which is given) and t = 3.00 s. Using this method, I get

V = a t = 7.6 m/s

But they also give you the length of the ramp X, and the acceleration rate. From that, one gets

V = sqrt (2 a X) = 8.0 m/s

They have given you more data than you need and the data are somewhat inconsistent.
