suppose that Andrew is running down the field at 8 yards per second and then cuts right running 6 yards per second. He executes this maneuver in 0.5 seconds. Calculate his acceleration
acceleration= change velocity/time
= (6yds/sec right-8yds/sec ahead )/.5
From experience, this is a 3-4-5 triangle, so the answer is 10yards/sec^2 in a direction of the angle whose tangent is 3/4 to the right.
You must have a coach for a teacher. Using American English units such as yards is not good use for preparing you for college, you really need to be learning the SI system of units.
ok thanks and yes i do
