A child slides down a hill on a toboggan with an acceleration if 1.5 m/s2^2. If she starts at rest, how far has she traveled in (a) 1.0s,(b) 2.0s, and (c) 3.0s?

  • physics -

    You can use the equation (d=Vit + 1/2 a t^2)

    So for the first one it would be: d= (0)(1) + 1/2 (1.5) (1^2)
    And the answer would be .75m

    Each time just plug in the time to 't' and keep all the other information the same.
