A sports car, picking up speed, passes between two markers in a time of 4.1s. The markers are separated by 120m. All the while, the car accelerates at 1.8m/s^2. What is its speed at the second marker?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is what i did:

d = vi(t)+1/2(a)t^2

120=vi(4.1)+1/2(1.8)(4.1)^2

29.3=vi+15.1

vi=14.2m/s

d=1/2(vi+vf)t

120=1/2(14.2+vf)(4.1)

vf=44.3m/s

vf=25.2m/s
