In running the 40 m dash in tryouts fot the Notre Dame football team, Zach S. completes the 40 m in 4.8 seconds. Assuming constant acceleration throughout the run, find his velocity at the end of 40 m and his acceleration during the 40 m.

It is falling. It has to fall, that is the law of gravity. Otherwise, it would leave Earth in a straight line. But if it falls at exactly the rate it needs to fall to travel in an orbit, we call that "orbiting". If if falls faster than that, it crashes into Earth. If if falls ...

Two cars cover the same distance in a straight line. Car A covers the distance at a constant velocity. Car B starts from rest and maintains a constant acceleration. Both cars cover a distance of 487 m in 216 s. Assume that they are moving in the +x direction. Determine (a) the...

these are two similar kinematics maths question which i dont know. Please help! 1)A particle moves in a straight line so that its distance, s metres, from a fixed point O is given by s = 2t^3 - 3t^2 - 12t + 6, where t is the time in seconds after passing O. Find the minimum ...

From t = 0 to t = 5.00 min, a man stands still, and from t = 5.00 min to t = 10.0 min, he walks briskly in a straight line at a constant speed of 2.3 m/s. (a) What is his average velocity vavg in the interval 2.000 min to 7.90 min? I found this to be 1.15 m/s (b) What is his ...
