A. 0.21

B. 0.46

C. 0.64

D. 0.78

E. 0.97

acceleration= change in velocity/change in time

and the velocity= change in displacement /change in time

Velocity=28 m/ 11 s= 2.5 m/s

Acceleration=2.5/11= 0.23 m/s^2

Which is close to Letter A, so the answer is letter A...is this correct?

**drwls**, Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 12:02amThe velocity you calculated is the average velocity. The acceleration is the FINAL velocity divided by the time interval. Use instead X = (1/2) a t^2

28 = (1/2)a t^2 = (1/2)*a*121

a = 28*2/121 = 0.46 m/s^2
