A racecar accelerates along a straight track. It reaches 160 km/hr when it is 0.4 km from the start. It maintains the same speed until it is 1.6 km from the start. What is the displacement of the car during the time that it goes 160 km/hr?

The answer is given. At that speed, it goes 1.6km

D = d2  d1 = 1.6  0.4 = 1.2km.
