At 10:15 am snail 1 crossed the 65 cm mark with a velocity of 4cm/min. In a great burst of energy, Snail 1 raced to the 90 cm mark in 3 minutes. His velocity as he crossed the 90 cm mark was 7cm/min. What was the acceleration of Snail 1?

  1. v = v0 + a*t
    a= (v-v0)/t
    a=(7-4)/3
    a=1 cm/min^2 SI units m/s
    4 cm/min = 0,04/60=6,7 10^-4 m/s
    7 cm/min = 0,001167
    a=5*10^-4/180
    a=2,76 *10^-6 m/s
