A car speed up from 18m/s to 34 m/s in 2 seconds


A) find the cars acceleration must write down all given information and show the work

B) What does this acceleration tell us about the motion of the car?

  • physics -

    v = vₒ+a•t ,
    a = (v - vₒ)/t = (34 – 18)/2 = 8 m/s².
    This acceleration tell us that this is the motion at uniform acceleration.
