Please help. Thanks! A car/truck with an initial displacement of 10.0 m and an initial velocity of 16.0 m/s accelerates at an average rate of 0.50 m/s2 for 4.0 s. What is the vehicle's displacement after 4.0 s?

asked by kristi
  1. 10 + Vo*t + (a/2)*t^2

    Vo = 16 m/s
    a = 0.50 m/s^2
    t = 4 seconds

    10 + (16*4) + (0.5*0.5*4^2) = ?
