    Car acceleration physics help

    Hello everyone! I just registered to this board, and need some help solving a physics problem. It reads: Car A leaves a city and travels along a straight road for 1.5 min at 60km/h. It then accelerates uniformly for 0.25 min until it reaches a speed of 80 km/h. It proceedes at that speed...
