distance = rate*time time for first hallway is time = distance/rate = 35.0/3.50 = ?? Do time for second hallway and third hallway the same, add the times together, and see if the total adds to more than 1 minute (the difference between 10:29 and 10:30).

5.00 m/s^2 is the acceleration rate of the passing car. Multiply it by the time interval for the velocity change/ You havew already written the correct equation. Solve if for t. t = (10 m/s)/(5 m/s^2) Your answer will be in seconds

Small rockets are used to make tiny adjustments in the speeds of satellites. One such rocket has a thrust of 35 N. If it is fired to change the velocity of a 71500 kg spacecraft by 64 cm/s, how long should it be fired?

Thrust x time, also known as "impulse", must equal the momentum change desired. In your case the momentum change required is 7.15*10^4 kg * 0.64 m/s = 4.58*10^4 kg m/s Set this equal to 35 Newtons * T and solve for T. It will be in seconds
