A race car is able to accelerate at a rate of 14m/s2. After exiting a turn at a speed of 15m/s, the car enters a straightaway and accelerates to a speed of 96m/s just as it reaches the end of the straightaway and enters the next turn.
A)how long did it take the car to accelerate to 96m/s.
b) how long is the straightaway, from the point where the car began accelerating the to point where it entered the next turn?

a. Vf = Vo + at,
t = (VfVo)/a = (9615) / 14 = 5.79s.
b. Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2ad,
d = (Vf^2Vo^2)/2a,
d = (9216225) / 28 = 321m.
