A biker starts to move and goes from a speed of 0 m/s to 25 m/s in a total time of 10s. What is the acceleration? How do I solve this question?

• physical science -

Speed = metres per second.

Acceleration = meters per second, per second

Therefore you can use the equation m/s2 to find the acceleration.
