A proton accelerates from rest in a uniform electric field of 620 N/C. At one later moment, its speed is 1.30 Mm/s (nonrelativistic because v is much less than the speed of light). (a) Find the acceleration of the proton. m/s2 (b) Over what time interval does the proton reach ...

A bolt drops from the ceiling of a train car that is accelerating northward at a rate of 3.15 m/s2. What is the acceleration of the bolt relative to the train car? I don't understand how to do this problem at all... and why isn't it zero? It seems if the train is going forward...

**Physics**

A sports car is accelerating up a hill that rises 17.0° above the horizontal. The coefficient of static friction between the wheels and the road is µs = 0.79. It is the static frictional force that propels the car forward. (a) What is the magnitude of the maximum acceleration ...

A commuter backs her car out of her garage with a constant acceleration of 1.20 m/s2. (a) How long does it take her to reach a speed of 1.60 m/s? s (b) If she then brakes to a stop in 0.8 s, what is her (constant) deceleration?
