A motorist increase speed from rest and in 21s reaches am a speed of 20km/hr.What is (a)the uniform acceleration in ms-2?(b)the distance covered in the time interval?

  • physics -

    Just dust off your good old formulas:

    v = at
    s = 1/2 at^2

    First, get better units:

    20 km/hr * 1000m/km * hr/3600sec = 5.555m/s

    Velocity changed from 0 to 5.555m/s in 21s.

    v = at
    5.555 = 21a
    a = 0.265m/s^2

    s = .5at^2 = .5*0.265*21^2 = 58.43m
