**1. Homework Statement**

A vehicle accelerates from 2 m/s to 26 m/s in 12 seconds. Determine the acceleration. Also find the average velocity and the distance travelled.

**2. Homework Equations**

Average velocity = Total distance/ time taken

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Acceleration = (26-2)/12 = 2m/s

^{2}

Average velocity = ???

Ok the answer for average velocity is = (26+2)/2 = 12.

Total distance = 14*12 =168m.

My question is how is the average velocity computed like this?? WHy 26+2???? And why divided by 2? Isn't the total time taken 12 seconds? SHouldn't it be divided by 12? ANy help would be Appreciated.
