Homework Help: physics

Posted by gerry on Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 3:39pm.

A tortoise and hare start from rest and have a race. As the race begins, both accelerate forward. The hare accelerates uniformly at a rate of 1.2 m/s2 for 4.3 seconds. It then continues at a constant speed for 11.7 seconds, before getting tired and slowing down with constant acceleration coming to rest 78.0 meters from where it started. The tortoise accelerates uniformly for the entire distance, finally catching the hare just as the hare comes to a stop.
What is the acceleration of the hare once it begins to slow down?
