A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly over a time of 6.5 seconds for a distance of 150 m. Determine the acceleration of the car.

  • physics -

    Average speed Vav = 150/6.5 = 23.1 m/s
    Final speed Vf = 2*Vav = 46.2 m/s
    Acceleration = Vf/(time) = 46.2/6.5 = ___ m/s^2

  • physics -

    7.107m/s^2
