A race car traveling at +44 m/s is uniformly accelerated to a velocity of +22 m/s over an 11-s interval. What is the displacement during this time?

(Don't solve it)

Why is the car being accelerated from +44 m/s to +22 m/s . . . wouldn't it be deacceleration?

figured it out

heh, deacceleration is acceleration just in the opposite direction; therefore, deacceleration can be positive or negative.

Thanks Royhaas!
