Liz rushes down onto a subway platform to find her train already departing. She stops and watches the cars go by. Each car is 8.60 m long. The first moves past her in 1.70 s and the second in 1.52 s. Find the constant acceleration of the train.

    A novice golfer on the green takes three strokes to sink the ball. The successive displacements of the ball are d1 = 4.00 m to the north, d2 = 1.90 m northeast, and d3 = 1.00 m at θ = 30.0° west of south (figure below). Starting at the same initial point, an expert golfer could make the hole in what single displacement?
