## Physics Problem: Displacement, Acceleration, Velocity

A skateboarder, starting from rest, rolls down a 11.0 m ramp. When she arrives at the bottom of the ramp her speed is 7.20 m/s.

(a) Determine the magnitude of her acceleration, assumed to be constant.

(b) If the ramp is inclined at 24.5° with respect to the ground, what is the component of her acceleration that is parallel to the ground?

 (a) Since the skateboarder is on an incline, a = g sinθ. To find the time it takes to descend, find the average velocity v = (vf - vi)/2. We know that t = distance/velocity, or in this case, 11/3.6. Using a = v/t, you can find that θ = ArcSin v/gt. (b) If you draw a diagram of the problem you'll see that the x-component of acceleration is ax = a cos24.5
 Average Velocity = (vf+vi)/2 and acceleration = (vf-vi)/t please could you explain how average velocity has been expressed as vf-vi over 2

Displacement Problem:
A car travels at a speed of 5 m/s along a square root ABCD find its displacement and average velocity from A to B, from A to C and from A to D i.e from A to all the corners with lenght of one side of the square is = 20 m.
Find dispacement and average velocity:
i- from A to B
ii- form A to C
iii- from A to D
