(a) What is the magnitude of the average acceleration of a skier who, starting from rest, reaches a speed of 9.62 m/s when going down a slope for 4.00 s? (b) How far does the skier travel in this time?

• College Physics -

a = change in velocity/change in time
= 9.62/4

average speed = 9.62/2 = 4.81
distance = 4 * 4.81
