what was the initial velocity of a race car traveling down a long straight track if it accelerates at 5.79m/s^2 and ends up going 163km/h in a time of 3.60 seconds?

  • physics -

    Conversion factor:
    1 m/s = 3.6 km/h


    Δv=(vf-vi)=vi+aΔt
    163 km/h = 163/3.6 = 45.28 m/s
    45.28=vi+5.79*3.6
    vi = 24.4 m/s = 88.0 km/h
