Sprinting near the end of a race, a runner with a mass of 70 kg accelerates from a speed of 6 m/s to a speed of 9 m/s in 2 s.
(a) What is the runner's average acceleration during this time?
(b) To gain speed the runner produces a backward force on the ground, so that the ground pushes the runner forward providing the force necessary for acceleration. Calculate this average force.
