I need help with the second part of this question. Please show work so I can see. Thanks.

I. The fastest land mammal, the cheetah, can accelerate from 0 mi/hr to 70.0 mi/hr in 3.0 seconds. What is the acceleration of the cheetah? Give your answer in units of mph/sec. I got 23.3 for my answer.

The Lamborghini Diablo sports car accelerates from 0.0 km/hr to 99.2 km/hr in 4.0 seconds. What is the acceleration of this car? Give your answer in units of kilometers per hour/sec. 7.
I got 24.8 kph/s as the answer for the above.

II. Which has a greater acceleration, the cheetah or the Lamborghini Diablo? (To figure this out, you must remember that there are 1.6 km in one mile) Be sure to show your calculations

  1. You gave your answer in miph/s. The
    problem says "give your answer in mph/s". Which one is correct?

    1. a = (V-Vo)/t = (70-0)/3=23.3 miph/s.

    a = (99.2-0)/4 = 24.8 kmph/s.

    2. a = 23.3miph/s * 1.6km/mi = 37.3 kmph/s. = acceleration of the cheetah.

    a = 24.8 kmph/s = acceleration of the
    sports car.

    Winner: The cheetah!!
